Let's Just Use Nancy Pelosi's Entire Head to Mop Up Gulf Oil

If Nancy Pelosi were a real patriot, she'd also offer to shave her back hair to save the Gulf.
“Well, the technology to drill may be different, but the technology to clean up is not,” she said, then went on to offer her Exhibit A of outmoded cleanup technology.
“I went to get a haircut the other day …they had a sign in there that said: ‘Will all of you donate your hair to send to the Gulf for cleanup?’ — could that be more primitive?” she said in distaste, referring to one of the more unusual Gulf oil cleanup campaigns, in which salons, barbers and pet groomers have been contributing tons of hair—biodegradable, absorbent–to sop up the oil.
“So,” Pelosi went on, “if the technology has advanced that the drilling is okay, they should have said: ‘Women across America have to donate their hair if this doesn’t work.’
“But they didn’t really say it that way. The technology making it safer implied, I think, that we would avoid this kind of thing.”
The real question is, did Pelosi offer up the hair or what? Primitive as it is, it might be better than anything they've tried to date.
