From our own Mugsy who did a fine job with this video mashup.

Where's the oil? Right Wing pundits dismissed spill.:

In the weeks immediately following the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform on April 20, 2010, Conservative pundits quickly tried to minimize the amount of damage we could expect from all that oil washing ashore, comparing it to "natural seepage" from the ocean floor. Then the oil started washing ashore, and suddenly this was "Obama's Katrina".

Can you help us out?
