Hey, remember last weekend on Fox News Sunday when everyone was talking about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Good times were had by all, especially by Brit Hume, who was feeling pretty breezy about the whole disaster:
JUAN WILLIAMS: First of all, don't you think, this spill now is going to be in excess of what happened with Exxon Valdez.
BRIT HUME: Let's see if that happens. There's a good question today if you are standing on the Gulf, and that is: Where is the oil?
WILLIAMS: Where is the oil?
HUME: It's not on -- except for little of chunks of it, you're not even seeing it on the shore yet.
Word, dude. I mean, does an oil spill even count if you can't see it? Is it even worth talking about if it's not on the shore? Besides, the ocean's totally got this, brah.
WILLIAMS: But I think it will damage the environment in the gulf and damage tourism and damage fishing. I don't think there's any question this is in excess of anything we've previously asked the ocean to absorb.
HUME: We'll see if it is. We'll see if it is. The ocean absorbs a lot, Juan, an awful lot. The ocean absorbs a lot.
I heard the word of Hume and said, "All right. I'm so not going to worry about this!" And then I chilled RIGHT THE HELL OUT, about the oil spill. That was all fine and dandy until Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal took a trip to the marshland along the coast of his state. You'll never guess what he found! Oil! On the shore! And he took some pictures!
So, here you go, Brit Hume. I've tried to add some helpful annotations:
