The Height Of Stupidity, Or, In This Case, The Depth Of Stupidity

Tony Hayward, chief executive of British Petroleum, claims the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is "relatively tiny" compared with the "very big ocean".

Oh yes he did.

In an interview with the Guardian at BP's crisis center in Houston, Hayward insisted that the leaked oil and the estimated 400,000 gallons of dispersant that BP has pumped into the sea to try to tackle the slick should be put in context, saying, "The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume."

Maybe so, Tony, so why don't we find a way to haul it out of the Gulf Of Mexico and lay it on the shores of Great Britain. I bet you'd be singing a different, less asshatted, tune then. Right Tony?
