Oil, What Oil?

Now that BP has gone from 1000-5000 barrels to 12,000-19,000 barrels, to 35,000 to 60,000 to 62,000 a day, Rachel feels about the same way I do about

Now that BP has gone from 1000-5000 barrels to 12,000-19,000 barrels, to 35,000 to 60,000 to 62,000 a day, Rachel feels about the same way I do about this. The latest line of B.S. from our government is that the oil and those dispersants they put out there with them are mostly gone now. Yeah right.

As Maddow reports they're now claiming 25% of the oil was boomed or skimmed, 25% evaporated or dissolved, 24% was dispersed through "human operations" and there's 26% residual that's still out there and they swear to god they're going to clean that up.

They're pretending some of these waters are safe to fish in now as well. I'll believe that when Thad Allen, all of the CEO's from BP and our EPA head start eating that fish for part of their daily diet on camera.
