$48 a barrel

I noticed that gasoline prices were back over $2 a gallon at the local station yesterday. Judging by the headlines, at least, the blame for the latest rise is being blamed on IraQuagmire, not on Venezuela or Russia like last week. While in the short term this is bad news for everyone in Iraq, including coalition troops, in the longer run we can hope that it thoroughly discredits the idiot-in-chief most responsible for the mess and causes him to lose the election, and in the even longer run convinces his sniveling opponent that it's time to change his tune and call for a rapid withdrawal of all US forces immediately following his inauguration, which in the longest run will be in the best interest of everyone, especially the troops and the people of Iraq.
