Fiddling While the Oil Churns

For those interested, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a fascinating animated, day-by-day accounting of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill available at its Environmental Visualization Laboratory website.

Someone should make a continuous loop of this and have it running on a large screen in the Oval Office so the One can be reminded constantly of how this mess is spreading while he fiddles, playing puerile politics with disaster. Better yet, put it on his Blackberry and IPod so he can have it with him on the golf course and at the concerts.
