Mississippi governor Haley Barbour tells the Associated Press:
Oil has not started washing up on shore in any large quantities, and Barbour likened much of the spill to the gasoline sheen commonly found around ski boats.
“We don’t wash our face in it, but it doesn’t stop us from jumping off the boat to ski,” Barbour said.

Tough guy! But then all the really tough guys seem to lack brains.
No, we don't wash our face in it. We leave that to the marine and avian life.
The Gulf gets pretty warm in the summer. Anybody want to take up a collection for a boat trip and some feathers to show the governor how they used to handle idiot politicians back in the days of the founding fathers? Or maybe we can save the cost of the boat trip when the tar gets close enough to the shoreline.
