“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

Debbie Stabenow is a bigger fool than Bill Frist

...Granholm still leads

I commented on the pathetic pandering of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's proposal to bribe us all, to the tune of $100 per taxpayer, to make up for 30 years of federal inaction on a rational energy policy.

I also called Govenor Jennifer Granholm a fool for calling for reduction in the supply of gasoline via additional taxation.

Comes Senator Debbie Stabenow
(D. MI). She wants to quintuple Frist's prostitution money and she supports windfall profit taxes. The governor's support for this "plan" shows she is the bigger fool. Granholm had a chance for sober second thought and she passed.

Ah, nice to see that the laws of supply and demand are still trumped by demagogery of third rate politicians.
