    Proof that some would rather play political games than really clean this mess up.

    I feel sorry for Gov. Jindal. He's trying to take care of his state, and he's working against two sets of incompetents--BP (not sure why they're so incompetent), and the feds (I have a pretty good idea of their problem).

    Obama--tell the offending members of the Coast Guard to quit screwing things up in this case, and let the governor get some stuff done. At least one person ought to be allowed to...

    One would think so, but in American politics that rarely happens.
