Jon Stewart Doesn't Like Joe Barton, and He's Not Impressed With Rex Tillerson Either
Which, turns out, is but one locally connected highlight, or the opposite of, during yesterday's House committee hearing: There was also Argyle's own Rex Tillerson explaining to Congress why Irving-based ExxonMobil's -- and all the other major oil and gas providers' -- oil spill contingency plan looks just like BP's, so much so all of their cut-and-paste plans include an emergency-contact phone number for a marine biology prof out of Miami named Dr. Peter Lutz, who died five years ago. Tillerson's unexpected rationale for Lutz remaining on the contact list "wins today's award for chutzpah," in the words of the UK Guardian's Richard Adams.
Jon Stewart recapped both Smokey Joe and Tillerson's steps into the sticky shit on The Daily Show last night:
