This is why we call him “Smokey Joe”

You’ve probably seen it by now, but feast your eyes anyway on Rep. Joe Barton apologizing to BP for that mean ol’ government making them pay for their mess in the Gulf.

He’s since apologized for the apology, but given that he was basically parroting the Republican party line, it’s clear he meant what he said and said what he meant the first time. He’s really just sorry people got mad at him for it.
