Vice President Joe Biden comments on Smokey Joe's wet, sloppy kiss to BP over the Gulf disaster.

I’ve told y’all about Smokey Joe Barton before, the Republican congresssleeze from the Dallas area. They call him Smokey Joe because he is owned lock, stock, and oozing waste by people who make a living polluting.

By most accounts, he is the most corrupt man in congress. He’s the one who apologized to BP for our Gulf water diluting their their oil.

He is a card carrying member of the Tea Party caucus.I do not know what to make of this, but it appears that he’s cashing out of the stock market.

I would say that he knows something we don’t know. But, we do. We know a default will be a disaster. And the clock is ticking.

And Smokey Joe knows that, too. He just doesn’t care.

Can you help us out?
