Joe Barton's apology-go-round hints at a truth about the Republicans in Washington: they're happy to side with corporate interests over the needs of the American people. Thousands of families and livelihoods have been ruined by worst oil spill in American history, but the man who may shape America's energy policy come November was clearly more interested in apologizing to the people who caused it than the people who've suffered.
