But he’s bought-and-paid-for, corporate-lackey, Republican-dumb, pond scum, and I guess that makes all the difference.

“Joe Barton is really, really sorry. The Texas congressman made headlines today for publicly apologizing to oil giant BP for what he called a government “shakedown” against the company; the government is asking BP to pay into a fund for those harmed by the disastrous Gulf oil spill. “I’m not speaking for anyone else, but I apologize,” he said. But his campaign of contrition for corporate wrongdoing didn’t stop there. Barton went for a “two-fer” today, firing off a letter with fellow apologist Cliff Stearns of Florida demanding a hearing about the inquiry launched today at the Federal Communications Commission into how the agency should regulate broadband networks. While not as blatant as his mea culpa to BP, if you read between the lines, the message is the same. Sorry, AT&T, that the FCC is bothering you. Sorry, Comcast, you can’t block legal content. Sorry, Verizon, I really tried to kill off Net Neutrality when I was in charge.” (Click here for more)
