A House panel to hold energy speculation hearing. Well, thank heavens! I was wondering how long it was going to take our idiot politicians to stand on a soap box and spew mindless partisan rhetoric about gas prices. I can’t wait to watch the hearings on c-span. The last time this topic was “investigated,” it turned out to be a laugh riot for viewers: Senator Barbara “chow chow” Boxer illustrated how talented she is at feigning indignant anger. Priceless.
