Dear Rep. Joe Barton.....

...there's a way to be industry friendly without giving BP the reach-around.

Here's a hint: Find the companies that are doing it the right way (and they are out there) and hold them up as examples of how things can be when a company doesn't scrimp on safety. Or, you can say something that's going to provide your opposition with the distraction they were looking for all along.

Being an elected official, I see you chose the less thoughtful option. There is a thing called "statesmanship" that's sadly lacking in America's lower house. This is not all Barton's fault, he's just the latest example.

(Note: If Joe Biden is ripping on you for a gaffe you've got issues.)
