What to do when you are totally inept and in way over your heads? Call in Hollywood and turn a disaster into a disaster film! At least, that’s what our illustrious federal government does now, under the king of all things scripted and illusionary, President Obama.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse than Shakira interjecting herself in Arizona’s illegal immigration policy, the feds swoop in and do one better. Sadly, this isn’t from The Onion. It’s for real:
Federal officials are hoping film director James Cameron can help them come up with ideas on how to stop the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The “Avatar” and “Titanic” director was among a group of scientists and other experts who met Tuesday with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for a brainstorming session on stopping the massive oil leak.
The Canadian-born Cameron is considered an expert on underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies.
“Avatar” and “Titanic” are the two highest-grossing films of all time.
Brainstorming. With James Cameron. Isn’t that an oxymoron? I wanted to title this “Obama, Starring in James Cameron’s The Oil Spill”, but the article doesn’t specify whether Obama was in attendance or not. So, I somehow doubt that he was, it being a brainstorming session and all. That’s not his forte, as he’s made painfully apparent. Over and over.
I just hope Obama doesn’t start adding the soundtrack to The Titanic now or speaking in Na’vi, whenever talking about the spill and it’s progress. No one needs to be subjected to that; his own total fabrications and overwhelming smug are bad enough.
At least they didn’t call in Kevin Costner as well. That would just drag the leak on and on; never-ending with the added insult of a tedious narrative, to boot.
The EPA’s new slogan: WWJCD? (What Would James Cameron Do?)
