You can't stop him, pt II
At the Corner, Rich Lowry suggests that the Republicans should campaign on cheap energy (tied in with other family-based cost of living issues). This is an excellent idea, and I would heartily recommend it, except for the fact that it is completely beyond our power to deliver on. And given that GOP credibility is already at a low, it's not a good idea to push it even lower.
Let's all say it together now, you can't stop high energy prices, you can only hope to contain them. This is something that both the Right and Left (as well as the people at large) have to appreciate and adapt to. We've made some progress on that front, but clearly there's still a long way to go.
