Ken Salazar still most likely irrational

Obama denied.

Part of the problem here is the federal government's benchmark of "deepwater": 500 feet. Macondo is ten times that depth, a hint of Salazar's arbitrariness in covering wells 501-feet deep in his rejected moratorium. Salazar says he'll issue revised guidelines soon, and you can count on his walking back that capricious over-inclusiveness.

Salazar's decree was a blunder from the outset.
