American Politics in a Nutshell

From Ezra's Wonkbook:

A New York Times/CBS poll has good news and bad news for environmentalists, report John Broder and Marjorie Connelly: Overwhelmingly, Americans think the nation needs a fundamental overhaul of its energy policies, and most expect alternative forms to replace oil as a major source within 25 years. Yet a majority are unwilling to pay higher gasoline prices to help develop new fuel sources."

  1. Ugh, god when I read that I wanted to punch every one of those dumb bastards in the face. Repeatedly.

    America needs to get over this stupid "I WANT EVERYTHING BUT I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR IT" phase NOW. It's like we're stuck in this perpetual toddler mindset, and it's embarrassing.
