Gov. Haley Barbour was still living in a state called denial during his appearance on Fox News Sunday when he proclaimed that the media was doing more damage than the oil disaster to Mississippi.

"Well, the truth is, Chris, we have had virtually no oil," Barbour told Fox News' Chris Wallace Sunday.

..."The average viewer to this show thinks that the whole coast from Florida to Texas is ankle-deep in oil," he said.

"Our tourist season has been hurt by the misperception of what is going on down here. The Mississippi Gulf Coast is beautiful. As I tell people, the coast is clear. Come on down!"

They may not be "ankle-deep in oil" yet, but it looks like Waveland, Mississippi is ankle-deep in dead fish. I'm sure Haley will just tell us this is naturally occurring as well.
