Apparently things are more dire than we thought, and if we do not have the Gas Tax Holiday, the good folks at Corrente will be forced to survive on ramen noodles and ketchup packets. I think we will all agree that is a better choice than their current diet of paint chips and bullshit election year talking points, but still a pretty sad situation.
At any rate, Sen. Clinton, I beg you to introduce your bill so we can get it passed immediately.
What? There is still no bill? What? It won’t get passed? What, even if it did, no one would see any real savings anyway?
Shit. As a newly minted member of the creative class, I am fresh out of ideas, because, let’s face it- what gets more creative than pretending people are starving to death and won’t find relief unless Obama is beaten rhetorically with a mythical gas tax holiday proposal? I mean, it is pretty hard to top that.

Eureka! We have a bill!
