Wednesday McCaineurysm

This really has been a banner week for the inanity/insanity of ol' McCranky. After (again) reversing himself, this time to give a big thumbs-up to offshore oil drilling, he concedes it really won't do anything to help the Americans being crushed by energy costs, but insists that it's still a good thing:
"I don’t see an immediate relief, but I do see that exploitation of existing reserves that may exist — and in view of many experts that do exist off our coasts — is also a way that we need to provide relief. Even though it may take some years (until 2030, to be exact, Johnnie Cakes -- V.), the fact that we are exploiting those reserves would have a psychological impact that I think is beneficial.
And maybe if we clap extra, EXTRA loud, the car will just keep rolling down the road on the power of our happy thoughts, eh?

After his ridiculous gas tax holiday idea went over like a lead balloon, Johnnie Mac continues with his shameless pander bear routine. When families have not only ruled out their usual road trip, but are finding themselves, paradoxically, working to cover their commuting costs, exactly how much psychological comfort do you think they're deriving from the knowledge that their government is working to achieve a price dip 28 YEARS, hence?

Maybe that DOES seem "beneficial" to you, John, but the rest of us who aren't living off our sugarmama's millions can't really afford to think that way.
