Our clueless Congress

The House just passed a measure allowing the Justice Department to sue OPEC members for limiting oil supplies and setting prices.

Does their cluelessness exceed their arrogance or is it the other way around? Maybe someone should tell Congress that OPEC has been setting prices openly for decades and that banging the rattle on the high chair and demanding OPEC do our bidding is no solution at all.

Bush says he’ll veto it. Good.

Instead of having election-induced temper tantrums, Congress needs to focus on creating renewable energy here and moving towards an economy not so dependent on the internal combustion engine.
