They just did a poll that says only 6 percent of Americans have a favorable view of BP, to which I say, 6 percent of Americans have a favorable view of BP? That's 18 million people. Is it possible that 18 million Americans don't know what the word favorable means?" –Jimmy Kimmel

"BP is running with this, I guess. Their company newsletter has an article that says most Gulf residents aren't upset with BP because their cleanup crews have boosted the local economy.

BP taking credit for boosting the economy in the Gulf is like Al Qaeda taking credit for creating jobs in airport security." –Jimmy Kimmel

"This Tony Haywire guy, whatever his name is, he told the BBC on Sunday that he believes the new oil cap that they've installed will eventually capture the vast majority of oil spewing from the well.
