Another Gas Bag to Add to the List
As anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis knows, I have a long list of obnoxious gas bags (which I affectionately call OGBs). Among others the list includes Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Ann Coulter, Al Sharpten, Jesse Jackson, etc.
Now another name has emerged for inclusion on the list. It's Texas Republican Joe Barton who yesterday apologized to the Chairman of the Board of BP for the apparent 'shaking down' of his company.
This guy is a pathetic jerk. Few people realize that some time ago as chairman of the health oversight committee he promised parents of autistic children more federal funding.
When the bill was ready to leave committee for a full house vote, he scratched that part of it because he didn't see a need.
Since then he obviously has not been very well liked in special education circles.
So, congratulations, Joe. You made it into an exclusive group of people. Good luck to your opponent when you come up for reelection.
