“This is our ethanol!”

Shocked, shocked I was to read that Sen. Boxer, in complaints about possible Democratic defections on the question of opening up California waters for drilling to help alleviate the nation’s energy crunch, complained “This is our ethanol!”

I think the subtext, if not the overt meaning, of that amazing disclosure is something like, ‘I went along with a selfish proposal that helped particular states. Senators pander to their base, rather than consider the national interest, so it is now payback for those Senators from the farm belt to do the same for me.’
