BP's recidivism

Posted By on Sat, Jun 19, 2010 at 4:21 PM

Joe Nocera's column today on BP's history as an environmental scofflaw should be required reading for anyone inclined to feel a pang of sympathy for limiting damages on this abuser of the sea.

Also on the topic of BP: Can Haley Barbour really ride to presidential prominence as an apologist for BP and a sugar-coater of the environmental damage?

He has also warned against efforts by the left to turn the spill into a regulatory cause célèbre.

“A bunch of liberal elites were hoping this would be the Three Mile Island of offshore drilling,” Mr. Barbour recently told the Mississippi Manufacturers Association.

Maybe Mike Beebe should nationalize the governor's race, too. Barbour, you remember, just came to town to raise money for Republican Jim Keet.
