The Gene Taylor Effect

by Pa Rock

Not to worry Gulf Coasters, Mississippi Congressman Gene Taylor flew over the massive oil spill today and announced: "It’s not as bad as I thought." Taylor, an astute southern politician, seems to believe that the oil will disperse naturally before reaching the shore of his state. Oh, yes, it's serious alright, but the congressman says that it's "certainly no Armageddon."

But it's still pumping, Gene, it's still pumping! At a million gallons a day, when will it become Armageddon?

This Gene Taylor is a Democrat, although he votes rather consistently with the Republicans and does a good job of representing knee-jerk conservative positions. I once personally knew another congressman named Gene Taylor. He was a Republican used car dealer, and he wasn't the sharpest pencil in the box either!

For those who take a more realistic view of the crisis on our southern shore, Huffington Post has posted a piece on how we can help:

It's time to get started, even if the oil is still gushing!
