drilling safety regulations, suggests God to blame for BPs oil disaster" align="right">
If the very Christian, very Republican governor of Texas is right on this one, he may soon find it politically
expedient to rethink his allegiances, what with 2010 being an election
year and all.
That's right: according to Republican Rick Perry, no amount of safety requirements can prevent an "act of God," which may or
may not have occurred in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in 11 dead oil
rig workers and a gusher of oil jetting over 2 million gallons of crude
per day into the fragile aquatic ecosystem.
