The First Phase of Addiction

There's a great article from the Washington Post on Schumer's stunt press conference in front of a Capitol Hill Exxon today. It seems as though the gaggle of senators assembled to demand that President Bush "get tough on big oil" saw no conflict of interest while piling into their SUVs for the short, walkable trip back to their offices. Writer Dana Milbank has it right: America is addicted to oil as President Bush has said, and most of the country, like these leaders, are in the denial phase of addiction.

I'd only add that it hasn't been Schumer or Hillary Clinton naming this addiction for the last few months. It's been Bush, and there's some kind of sweet irony in that.

Read Milbank's article, "Going A Short Way To Make a Point," here.

Some people are so lazy. It would be nice if our elected representatives would have more fuel-efficient cars. I think leading by example is something they should do.
