John McCain had planned a trip to New Orleans that included an appearance with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and a photo op on an offshore oil rig to show his support for drilling in the Gulf.

Unfortunately the weather played a hand in the offshore visit and a minor collision and oil spill* in Old Man River didn't help either. Having the odor of diesel in the air could have been a problem even without smellovision.

*How bad could it be? The whole barge only contained 419,000 gallons.

Surely there must be a mistake.
We NEVER have weather related oil spills that pollute!
Perhaps you meant to say DRILL MORE HOLES offshore?

The weather gods don't like McCain-just like when Bushie was rained out of a Cades Cove press event.
