Ed Balls will not be head of British government. They've installed David Cameron of the Conservative Party. To me it looks like the three stooges running the country. Darn no Balls to joke about and I was so ready. I'm not totally up on my British politics but Nick Clegg brokering a deal, I think this would be like Pelosi and DeMint forming a coalition government. Yea that would get far wouldn't it?
Then there was that circular firing squad of BP Transocean and Haliburton. If ever there was a display of the three stooges doing the Shaggy defense this would be it. Next we'll hear the Twinky defense I'm sure. They blamed everybody but their mothers and grandparents for this disaster but maybe they're saving that defense for later. Maybe we could just borrow Mr. Balls from Britain because we sure need some in this situation. Here you have regulators who won't regulate (remember these fine people were caught just a few years ago having wild orgies with some BP reps). Oh, and remember that these were the Bush flunkies who said everything was just peachy because you know when Cheney makes energy policy with the oil companies behind closed doors with nothing recorded then it must be okay. You have companies that won't take responsibility for their actions and expect to dump the whole thing on the taxpayer. Great, I should start a large corp. and get to keep all the profits with no risk of loss. And not one of these clowns will land up in jail you just know it because that's the way things work.
