    Oh, the Republicans understand the disaster perfectly. But since they profit from it as long as BP profits from it, anything that interferes with the graft they expect from BP is a “Shakedown” in their eyes.

    Face it: Being a Republican politician in the USA in the 21st Century means you represent Big Corporations, not the voters. And certainly not the best interest of America; that might interfere with your plans to get millions of dollars in “campaign funds” (read: slush funds) from Big Oil and so on.
