NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT: Mark Penn gets lots and lots of money to think things like this:

On the BP crisis, he needs to get away from the posturing politicians and the environmentalists and get together with scientists, generals and big-time business people who have experience solving big logistical problems. Now is the time to call in the big brains, lock them in a room, and deliver every possible resource to shut the oil flow down; think Manhattan Project meets Independence Day, with fewer aliens and more eggheads.

It's just that easy! Via LGM. (By the way, the oil spill has made me realize that if there was an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, we'd just go extinct. "Sure," I would tell myself, "Armageddon is a terrible film. But surely good ole American human ingenuity would find a way to save the day." But no. We'd be the new dinosaur juice for the sentient cockroaches.)
