I think that has to be my favorite bullshit argument currently coming from the right. Even Papa Bear isn't buying it:



Bachmann's such a hack.

And here's Daniel Larison, quoted from the American Conservative magazine:
Quote :
It appears that the corporation responsible for the spill is attempting to take responsibility for the consequences of its negligence, and it doesn't appear that much coercion was involved. I can understand that Reihan does not want to encourage a spirit of vindictiveness, and he probably doesn't want to encourage anti-corporate populism that this spill has been fueling (if you'll pardon the expression), but anything less than some gesture from BP like this one would have ensured that both would have become much stronger. I haven't heard such tone-deaf arguments from the right since the Republican leadership was rallying around the financial industry to defeat a financial regulation bill that made major financial firms responsible for covering liquidation costs of failing firms. Back then we heard about how it was a fund for "endless bailouts," and today we hear that this fund is a shakedown. There are other similarities between the two cases, except that in this case many people on the right are trying to be more pro-corporate than the corporation under scrutiny. Even if it this weren't politically insane given the public's mood, it would still be wrong on the merits.

And this happens to be one of my new favorite websites:

I don't care what side O'reilly is on. I happened to listen to two of his programs this week. He's an arrogant, stupid SOB. Even when he was interviewing (damn, can't think of his name) an idiot from Fox that has his own show.

Nothing could be made out between the two. O'Reilly is the worst interviewer I've seen on TV. He asks a question, butts in, calls the other person an idiot, and nothing comes from the interview. I can't stand the guy.

Him and the guy, damn, I wish I remember who it was....a popular host, full of shitz, but a friend and a waste of time listening....
