Through A Teabag, Darkly

Criticizing a British company for environmental devastation of American waters and coastline is "un-American":

WASHINGTON – Kentucky's Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul criticized President Barack Obama's handling of the Gulf oil spill Friday as putting "his boot heel on the throat of BP" and "really un-American."

Paul's defense of the oil company came during an interview in which he tried to explain his controversial take on civil rights law, an issue that has overtaken his campaign since his victory in Tuesday's GOP primary.

"What I don't like from the president's administration is this sort of, 'I'll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,'" Rand said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America." "I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business."

Does this dimwit even understand what "Tea Party" refers to?

(Read the whole article; it's comedy gold! And Obama hasn't even put on argyle sock on BP. Someone please send him some steel-toed hob-nail boots.)
