Doug Suttles vs. Dennis Miller

"I want Barack Obama to roll the eggs out on the lawn at Easter. I want him to save the bird's neck at Thanksgiving. I want him to light the tree at Christmas and fund the military.  And the rest of it—I just don't trust the government. I'm not paranoid. I'm not a militia guy. I just don't think they know what they're doing." —former comedian Dennis Miller

British oil giant BP confirmed Thursday that up to 5,000 barrels of oil a day are spilling from the site of the deadly oil rig explosion the occurred earlier this month in the gulf. Doug Suttles, the oil company's chief operating officer, told NBC's Today show that oil is bubbling up from the ocean bottom at a rate of 1,000 to 5,000 barrels a day. He said the company would welcome help from the U.S. Defense Department and other agencies in containing the slick. "We'll take help from anyone," Suttles said. —NPR
