Clear and Present Pandering

"We don't know what we want, but we know how to get it." Sex Pistols

I expected McCain to shill for big oil but to find HRC supporting a gas tax holiday indicates her desperation at trailing Obama in the delegate count.

HRC looks to rekindle her lagging campaign by proposing a meaningless palliative that sounds good but does nothing to address our lack of a long-term energy policy. Jesus H Christ! You'd think that the gasoline shortages of the 70's would have pushed us to demand a national energy policy.

Obama's principled opposition to the tax holiday is sure to further alienate those gullible voters that believe every bullshit promise artfully packaged in today's 30 second sound bite.
