Just how safe are those beaches?

"A few tar balls."

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour was in full tourism director in chief mode on Fox News Sunday this week, urging people not to let the worst oil spill in American history interfere with their summer vacation plans.

Now where have we heard a politician say something like that before?

I guess Barbour should actually go to a Miss. beach first; here's the beaches in Waveland, MS, covered with dead fish, a sad pic:

Republicans are so ASSumtive...the right-wing idiot barbour even seems to think he knows where every shark in the ocean is...

Just vote for Dems...we cannot afford the stupidity the GOP represent.

Thanks, KT! Great shark, I mean, snark. I wonder how Gov. Barbour would react to a giant shark hitting the beaches. “Oh, we’ve had a few fish swimming along the coast every year. It’s called the ocean, people.” That aside, it’s hard to imagine Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw going out into the Gulf to hunt down a giant tar ball.
