Please, God, let Obama keep talking about tires from now until November.
And please let Obama keep insulting those who have concluded that tire inflation is not an energy policy.
I think Allen Colmes may have been miffed with me on tonight's show when I said as much, but the contrast between the uber-serious John McCain and the dilettante from Chicago's South Side is never more obvious than when the latter is lecturing America on tire care.
Unless when it is talking about the war against the jihadists, the war McCain wants to win and which Obama is pledged to forfeit.
As Hugh says, voting for a Democrat--any Democrat--is a vote for high gas prices. Nancy Pelosi, who is from a safely moonbatty district out in San Francisco, is willing to take the heat for those supposed Blue Dog Democrats who stole Republican seats in 2006 (and no, I don't mean literally stole like nuts whine that the 2000 election was "stolen."), but don't just blame her. Democrats controlling Congress--even with the help of supposedly conservative Democrats--means higher gas prices. They want the price to stop you using gas because then they can scream we need more wind turbines and you need to ride your bike in 100-degree heat to the bus stop.
Americans like the idea of moving away from fossil fuels, but they also like their cars, plastics, and other petroleum products. In other words, they want it all.
Think Progress does the heavy lifting for Obama, saying that Obama didn't say inflating your tires would achieve energy independence. No, he said something dumber: that inflating your tires would save as much oil as we could drill offshore and in ANWR. Newsbusters spells out why conservatives aren't the ones who don't understand mathematics.
