Joe Barton is proud of this. He’s actually proud of this.
Newsminer.com reports that Barton tweeted after this exchange: “I seemed to have baffled the Energy Sec with basic question—Where does oil come from?” Barton was proud of this. Smugly. He placed this video on YouTube HIMSELF. He titled it “Energy Secretary puzzled by simple question.” Joe Barton is downright giddy over this exchange. He is PROUD of it.
Yeah, you sure got Dr. Chu there. Because we all know that the oil actually got there when Jesus rode to Alaska on a magic horse and stopped to take a dump at the Alaskan North Slope.
By the way, as via Newsminer.com , the answer to that question can be found in plain English on the internets at Scientific American. And, for the record, Chu’s brief reply to this weird question was on the money.
Wowsers. Wowsers. Wowsers.
