    I wonder how McDonnell will justify his love of deep water drilling after that happens. He’ll find a way.

    Robert Reich had a great commentary on NPR’s Marketplace yesterday, arguing that BP’s North American subsidiary should be placed in temporary receivership.  I completely agree; at this stage we cannot allow BP’s possession of the relevant expertise and equipment to push the national interest aside in favor of their corporate interest.

    This also makes me regard Palin’s recent pivot towards drilling in ANWR as all the more odious. She has blamed environmentalists for causing the BP spill by opposing dry-land and shallow-water drilling in ANWR and elsewhere.  The former half-term governor of Alaska truly lacks shame.
