I'm constantly amazed....

....that Senators making statements such as this aren't laughed out of the room:

(Oversight of Oil-reg equipment draws scrutiny, Siobhan Hughes, Wall St. Journal)
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.) said technological, human and regulatory failures contributed to the oil-rig accident in the Gulf of Mexico
Considering there's been no evidence brought up from the sea-floor as of yet, and all we have is speculation to go on, that's an amazing statement by Sen. Bingaman.

And you wonder why I call the US Senate "Society's Least Common Denominator"?

The 11 rig-workers that died in the blowout deserve better than election year political posturing.
