You think this is a holiday? Think again!

Before you start thinking this whole gas tax holiday is a good idea, may I inject a little economic wisdom. Okay, not me exactly since my idea of economic restraint leans more towards hitting every available happy hour in town, but Len Burman, who is director of the Tax Policy Center of the Brookings Institution. Follow this link to a very short article that explains the fantasy, in plain english no less, that first McCain proposed in his most pandering manner, and then Hillary, who panders better then anyone (not to mention her shameless playing of the race card to scare "us white folks"), jumped on board to this unrealistic, unworkable idea. Only Barack seems to have any credibility here, but then that's the last thing NASCAR Nation wants to hear, 'cause, shoot, y'all heard his middle name is Hussein, yuh know.
