Idiocy is bipartisan...

The G.O.P. really did it again with the Great Gas Rebate! And, despite the idiocy of their plan, even some of the Dems wanted to grab credit for it. It really shows how out of touch with the people the Washington politicos are.

I can't recall ever agreeing with anything from right-wing talk radio, but Rush Limbaugh, as quoted in the NY Times got it right: "What kind of an insult is this? Instead of buying us off and treating us like we're a bunch of whores, just solve the problem."

Rush may not want to solve the problem the way I would - imposing a couple of buck gas tax, mandating really high mileage requirements, and investing real dollars in alternatives to petrol - but Rush is spot on about the rebate idea. It's just a marketing attempt to buy votes for the fall elections, no matter which party it comes from.

God save us from the stupidity of politicians and the people who support their idiocies.
