(Newser) – Rush Limbaugh, environmental expert, circled back to the topic of the Gulf oil spill yesterday, but before he tackled the topic of beaches and turtles, he clarified his scientific credentials: "I happen to own beachfront property. I think I can better identify with people living on the Gulf Coast than anybody in the media who does not have beachfront property. Most of them don't have beachfront property. They don't have any skin in the game."

Now that that's settled, he explained the upside to oil hitting the beach: "There won't be any people on the beach. Yes! That's a positive." And it's not just those pesky tourists the oil will thin out. "I might be able to keep my lights on at night because there won't be any turtles on the beach." And in the end, all will be well: "At some point the beach will fix itself."
