(Newser) – Joe Barton may have stolen some of the thunder at yesterday's congressional hearing with his BP apology and retraction, but let's not forget the performance of CEO Tony Hayward, who did "his best imitation of a blowup doll," complain Jason Linkins and Ben Craw. If Hayward is to be believed, "he managed to get through nearly three decades of working in the oil business without actually learning anything about it."

Nor did he play a role in "any important decisions." Rep. Michael C. Burgess was "absolutely correct" when he summed up Hayward's obfuscations by noting that "any one of us could do his job." Craw put together a 4-minute mashup of his I-don't-knows, which can be seen at the Huffington Post here.
