‘Colbert Report’: Joe Barton’s Misconstrued Misconstruction

Posted on Jun 22, 2010
Colbert on Barton
colbertnation.com

That Rep. Joe Barton got himself into quite a jam last week when he apologized to BP for the White House “shakedown” of the megacorp, but, as Stephen Colbert puts it here, a Barton backlash was soon to follow, as “even Republicans like John Boehner backed away so fast, you’d think Barton said it in Spanish.” Zing! In this clip from Monday’s “Colbert Report,” our host is at the ready with his BP-fueled rage to jump on the Barton-bashing wagon. —KA

I just don`t know,
Killing 11 people,
lieing about 80,000 gal. oil leak a day,
doesn`t make you all bad!
Didn`t they recently pass a bill deeming Corporations as having the same rights as an individual, WELL, 11 dead! Somebody needs to be jailed 11 dead and nothing, but Shame, no one goes to jail! time for riots in the street.
