Rahm Emanuel said on ABC's This Week that Rep. Joe Barton's comments on BP were "not a political gaffe. ... That is a philosophy."

Sarah Palin replied on Twitter:

Emanuel also said that "the Republicans were the majority, would have actually the gavel and the chairmanship" of the energy and commerce committee. In fact, John Boehner has said that Barton would not be the chairman due to term limits.
