    That's really sickening--there's an obvious allusion to a monkey in a zoo throwing his ****. You can't be that ignorant. You have to know how totally inappropriate this.

    Why don't you go post that on Stormfront?

    It makes sense that the well would still leak out, but as time goes on the flow will lessen.
    ...if it works, that is... which we all are hoping it will... However, even BP admits that they won't know if it is working or not until at least Sunday...

    My dad works for the MMS. BP has NOT plugged the leak. My father receives hourly updates directly from the command center in Houston and while they are making progress, they have definitely NOT plugged this leak. The coast guard was incorrect.

    This isn't breaking news, its flat out wrong.

    We are all HOPING it is working, but as you correctly point it, success has not occurred yet, nor is it guaranteed at this point...

    It's zimmer's take on a Bush cartoon.

    It wasn't funny the first time he posted it either, but it's not racist (for that reason).

    Fixed the thread title to reflect the BBC's updated title.

    This "Top Kill" is to make you feel better that something is being attempted.

    For the most part it is nonsense.
    Were talking about trying to plug a firehose with a pixy stick, and the pressure that this well is under at the moment is incalcuable. Its under 5000 feet of water (8lbs a gallon) and between 10-20 thousand feet (not reported for this rig yet) below the sea floor. This will be America's Chernobyl and the largest oil spil ever because it likely wont end till the intercept well reaches it in August. Stop buying the political games, its clear that its meant to manipulate you and the markets.

    I love Steve Bell cartoons, doesn't matter that they smacked Bush hard. The guy was hilarious during the Bush years.
    Thanks to your vocal opposition, I will augment more in the future, but this particular cartoon is recyclable for Obama in a whole host of ways simply because Obi is in way over his head.
    It shows.

    This particular version, "Daddy, you plug the hole yet?" is a perfect fit for President Top Kill.
    He inserted his daughter into the mix, and... well... can you say "hand in glove"?

    Obi thought he was clever when he tried to bring her into the mix at the Presser to kill criticism of his ineptitude.
    Also to try to leave the impression HE... THE ONE we have been waiting for... plugged the hole.
    Well... I think it begged for ridicule.

    Hence this version.

    Enjoy.

    .
    PS. Haznut. Do I hear an apology?

    See how well they can be adapted?
    Could be used just as easily for his and Democrats love of illegal aliens.
