What John McCain is offering consumers, in his own words, in that Today interview Larry justly panned earlier. What a rallying cry. He also seemed at one point to suggest that there is going to be notable progress on developing alternative fuels–by November! Again, it’s a huge missed opportunity when energy is such a high-profile issue that the Republican standard-bearer opposes drilling in the mosquito-infested bog that is ANWR and supports a hugely complicated indirect tax to make energy more expensive. At least he’s saying the right things on nuclear.
If Americans are so brilliant we can develop terrific new alternative fuels, how come we’re so stupid we can’t drill in a mosquito-infested bog without disturbing the environment? (Especially when the Canadians are doing so less than a hundred miles away? Are you watching ‘Ice Road Truckers?’)
