Hillary Clinton mega-donor indicted for scamming money from Deepwater Horizon spill.

Well now. Hillary Clinton really needs to give back that money. And I’m not just saying that because I’m cruel that way.

A major Hillary Clinton fundraiser has been indicted for false statements and identity theft related to the Deepwater Horizon litigation.

The San Antonio Express-News reported Wednesday that a federal grand jury in Mississippi has indicted Mikal Watts, a Texas attorney who has been accused of using false identities to inflate the number of clients he was representing in the class action lawsuit against BP.

#rsrh So. Peter Fonda. Crazy, huh? [NSFW]

Via Drudge, apparently Peter Fonda thinks that the President is a traitor who has inspired Peter Fonda to encourage firearms training in his grandchildren…

Before we go any further: go fuck yourself with a carbon credit folded up spiky, Peter Fonda.  Both for saying that shit, and for saying it in a way that will give your gun-grabber buddies extra ammunition against law-abiding firearms owners.

…because Fonda didn’t like Obama’s reaction to the British Petroleum oil spill.  As in, President Obama did not ritually sacrifice the top leadership of BP on a makeshift altar on a Louisiana beach in order to appease an angry and wounded Mother Ocean.  I have to wonder whether this was just a publicity stunt, though: Fonda’s going to have a movie out on the subject, you see.  God save us from the Activist Left…

Never let an oil leak go to waste?

[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers.

Glenn Reynolds reminds me of this paragraph by Allahpundit in response to the news that the President has been aware of the true magnitude of the BP spill all along:

The real disgrace here is why, if he really did know right away that this was the oil equivalent of an asteroid strike, he didn’t scramble some sort of all-hands-on-deck emergency operation to protect the coastline. Remember, Jindal reportedly requested five million feet of hard boom back on May 2, long after Obama (according to Wolffe) knew about the magnitude of the disaster. By May 24, not even 800,000 feet had arrived. What happened?

So, seeing as it’s been clear all along to the White House that we had an ecological disaster on our hands: why did the President not act in a timely fashion to try to keep the oil off of the beaches in the five Gulf of Mexico states?

State Governor Party Election Year? Note
Alabama Bob Riley Republican Yes Open race
Florida Charlie Crist Independent Yes Former GOP
Louisiana Bobby Jindal Republican No GOP leader
Mississippi Haley Barbour Republican No RGA head
Texas Rick Perry Republican Yes Re-election

Gee, I don’t have the slightest idea.

BP/Obama Karma Watch: June 2, 2010.

(Via Drudge) The saw is stuck.

The risky effort to contain the nation’s worst oil spill hit a snag Wednesday when a diamond-edged saw became stuck in a thick pipe on a blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said the goal was to free the saw and finish the cut later in the day. This is the latest attempt to contain — not plug — the gusher. The best chance at stopping the leak is a relief well, which is at least two months from completion.

Of course it is.

In other news, a tanker full of puppies, cheerful nuns, and plucky orphans has been dispatched to the Gulf region to help with the spill; the SS Molly Brown will be docking at Galveston on the way in order to pick up the world’s greatest living brain surgeon, who will be assisting next week in an emergency procedure to save the life of a brilliant researcher on the verge of making a breakthrough in the field of fusion power.  Accompanying her will be the world’s last remaining stores of live smallpox virus, secure in a pendant around a rhesus monkey’s neck.

Because we might as well get it over with.
