The Government's Boot On BP's Neck

Ken Salazar, the administration's Secretary of the Interior, put it so aptly, didn't he, when he declared,

"Our job basically is to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum to carry out the responsibilities they have both under the law and contractually to move forward and stop this spill," Salazar told CNN's "State of the Union" program.

Sweet, huh?

Ken went on to state that he was certain that the rig's mechanism to stop an oil leak was defective.

Wow, Ken. You must be a genius and super-engineer, to know that without seeing any evidence.

But isn't the best part how Ken carries Wonderboy's message of hatred for private industry and the image of a jackbooted, thuggish federal government to the media?

Make you feel save and trusting of the federal government, doesn't it? Wanting to give it more and more authority and power? Over your health care, financial dealings, and the internet?
