Top Kill

It failed, of course:

ROBERT, La. — BP has failed in its latest attempt to plug the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico with mud and cement, the company said Saturday.

BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said the company determined the "top kill" method had failed after studying it for three days. The method involved pumping heavy drilling mud into a crippled well 5,000 feet underwater.

"We have not been able to stop the flow," Suttles said. "We have made the decision to move onto the next option."

It was the latest setback for the company trying to stop the crude from further fouling waters, wildlife and marshland. Other attempts included a gigantic box placed over the leak and a tube inserted to siphon the oil away. The box failed after ice-like crystals clogged it, while the tube was removed to make way for the top kill after it sucked up more than 900,000 gallons of oil.

The spill is the worst in U.S. history and has dumped between 18 million and 40 million gallons into the Gulf, according to government estimates.

President Accountability said he takes "full responsibility" for the mess down in the gulf.

All right.

What's your plan, Stan?

Because it's clear BP doesn't know what the fuck to do.

Of course we all know you don't know what to do either, President Accountability.

But you like to talk a good game.

It's nice to see people aren't buying your jive.

This is YOUR KATRINA, Obama.

So get back from your fucking vacation in Chicago

Or resign and let somebody else do the job you clearly can't.
