What could possibly go wrong?

The Obama administration is accused of having suppressed scientific information on what the worst-case scenario might have been in the Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill.

So how’s that “more open, more transparent government” thingie workin’ out for ya?

Truth is, there wasn’t much to suppress. Everyone knew the worst-case scenario was an Earth-extinction event. That’s because the worst-case scenario is always an Earth-extinction event, whether you’re talking about an oil spill, nuclear war, a rogue asteroid or the mysterious deaths of the honeybees that pollinate our crops. Duh.

Actually, that’s not quite precise. The worst worst-case scenario would be an Earth-extinction event preceded by a global shortage of beer.
