Sheen Employs Divide & Conquer Strategy, Claims to Be 'Bi-Winning'

The U.S. Coast Guard continued to investigate the "oily substance" that was spotted in a sheen in the Gulf of Mexico Saturday, then started to wash ashore Sunday. In all, the Coast Guard said in a statement issued last night that a half-mile of the shoreline along Grand Isle, Elmer's Island and Fourchon Beach has seen the stuff roll up. Four skimmers, two barges and 10,000 ft. of boom were dispatched to the scene. Despite testing that began Saturday, the source and exact makeup of what exactly was in the sheen has yet to be identifed. The Coast Guard doesn't think it's from the Deepwater Horizon, leaving open the possibility that it's got tiger blood.
