Oil Tanker Spill Explained by Spin Master Senator

Listen as this seasoned pol tows us all “beyond the environment” in his amazing explanation of how 20,000 barrels of crude oil spilled from an oil tanker. Lucky for us, most oil tankers “are built so that the front doesn’t fall off at all.” (You’ve got to see and hear him to fully appreciate it. Click below.)

Could John Cleese or Eric Idle of Monty Python’s Flying Circus have come up with something zanier than this Australian politician’s (a Senator?) comments?

And, if anyone can tell me who this guy is, or the interviewer, or when it was done, I would love to know. — Any Australians in the house — you might know them! Now, without further ado, the video, please.
