Utter Slut

Mississippi Congressman Gene Taylor seems to think the seriousness of the oil spill is being overblown. At least that's what he said after getting a flyover on Saturday.

“This isn’t Katrina. It’s not Armageddon,” Taylor said. “A lot of people are scared and I don’t think they should be.”
Is the media somehow overplaying the gravity of the situation, or is Taylor being overly kind?
Taylor said he thinks British Petroleum and the federal government are working together to contain the spill. The former Coast Guard reservist is more confident because Adm. Thad W. Allen, a 30-plus year Coast Guard veteran only one month from retirement, is taking the lead federal role in the disaster.
The Huffington Post calls him an "utter slut for the oil industry." I'm glad they're trying to be nicer these days.
