Day 52 PB Gulf Oil Crisis. Forget Obama. Where's Mel Gibson?

Day 52 of the BP Gulf Oil Spill.

This isn't Obama's Katrina. This is Obama's Iran Hostage Crisis. Beginning in 1979, 52 Americans were taken hostage by Islamists in Iran and held for the next 444 days.


Night after night news reporters told their audiences how many days the hostages had been held.


It's like that now with the BP Gulf Oil Spill. Why can't someone just DO something? No doubt the answer is obvious to an oceanic petroleum engineer, but even overall-clad, alleged "hillbillies" have proposed answers that seem more reasonable than anything Obama's done.


This is a Mel Gibson moment. I see a big budget, summer blockbuster. Mel Gibson is a tough cop on the verge of retirement. But he's got one last job. Kidnapping BP CEO Tony Hayward and keeping him in a dreary, unfurnished room where Gibson, pushed beyond reason by environmental catastrophe, holds a gun to Hayward's head and orders him to "STOP THE SPILL NOW, PUNK! Or I'll show you exactly what a NYPD cop on the verge of retirement but pushed to the edge by environmental catastrophe is capable of!!!"
