Kill the Bastards! Chris Matthews on BP: "It's Maddening"

Thomas Schueneman

MSNBC's Chris Matthews clearly goes over the top when suggesting in any literal sense that the CEO's for BP, Transocean, or Halliburton be "executed" for their failure. But Matthews' anger, frustration, and sadness over the situation in the Gulf belies his desire to execute them figuratively. He reflects a growing sentiment, one that appears ever more justified with each statement from BP defending its performance in the operation of the offshore well it owns and the aftermath of its catastrophic failure.
