“I was watching the Big Oil execs testifying before Congress. That was my ?rst mistake... Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz knew the routine: ‘I can’t say that there is evidence that you are manipulating the price, but I believe that you probably are. So prove to me that you are not.’ Had I been in the hapless oil man’s expensive shoes, I’d have answered, ‘Hey, you ?rst. I can’t say that there is evidence that you’re sleeping with barnyard animals, but I believe that you probably are. So prove to me that you are not’.” —Mark Steyn

From yesterday's Patriot Post (http://patriotpost.us)

I think Congress is becoming The House of Morons.

Mike how generous of you to say "is becoming".

As the old saying goes...Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often and for the same reason.

Watching Maxine Waters, who is known for her very brainy behavior, lecture a man running a multinational oil drilling and refining corporation for turning a profit AFTER $60 BILLION in taxes is at the same time very funny, and very sad.

Proof positive that nobody outside private industry understands it. After hundreds of billions in revenue, the 6 billion 'record' profit is then capital, to re-invest and add capacity.

+1 to both points.

I thought the executives held their own by turning the tables about drilling in this country.

John, you are correct. "Is becoming" way past tense. What was I thinking? They are already there. Your are right, politicians are like diapers.
