The headline says it all, doesn't it?

As does the lead paragraph, here:

Obama spill panel big on policy, not engineering
WASHINGTON — The panel appointed by President Barack Obama to investigate the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is short on technical expertise but long on talking publicly about "America's addiction to oil." One member has blogged about it regularly.
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that piker in the White House would put a bunch of ideologues in charge who know more about gushing tired old platitudes than about what causes oil spills, but it's still quite disheartening.
