Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. "They're not in any mood to hand over even more power in the form of a new national energy tax to a government that, so far, hasn't lived up to their expectations in its response to this crisis."

Oh yeah!…not to hypocritical…this quote in USA Today just gave me a Jon Stewart moment…

Say nothing while one administration is for years too cozy with “Big Oil,” while doing everything possible to hamstring government as “too big”…then take cheap shots when it can’t suddenly overcome those cuts to be “big enough” to do the job.

As Garrison Keillor once wrote about a similar statement, “like a small man with bad toupee who thinks he is Tom Cruise and makes you want to say “just stop it.”

Definitely grist for a Jon Stewart moment.
