Bastard of the Day

Both Dennis Hastert and Bill Frist are claiming that Bill Clinton should be blamed for high gas prices. C'mon guys, he hasn't been president for half a decade! And for much of that time, you two have been guiding the legislative agenda of our country. What has your "bold" leadership achieved? Surely you could have done something since 2000 to, I don't know, raise fuel economy standards. Or was Dick Cheney's secret energy task force supposed to solve our problems? Yeah, that's it. Blame Dick. But watch your backs. He'll blow off your faces next.

Still, the best you can do is to permit drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge? You guys know damn well there isn't enough oil there to make an appreciable difference in our supply over the long term (of course, oil supply isn't the problem right now anyway -- just ask the Saudis). And you know that contrary to your statements, Dr. Frist, Americans do not "overwhelmingly support" wrecking that environment for an extra trickle of crude.

Above all, just how long do you expect Americans to buy this "blame Clinton" schtick? You bastards really need to come up with some new material.
