Gas Price Shame

Find yourself in a hotly contested primary battle, which will be followed by a very tough general election? Is the economy turning around (damn it!), evaporating your linchpin issue from that general election?

Well, here's what you do: rattle your sabers as aggressively as you possibly can re: attacking Iran, until you've helped whip up extreme apprehension in the oil markets. Then, as the price of gas rises, rail at the president for the shamefully high gas prices.

I'd say this was a new low, but I don't suppose I'll ever see, in my lifetime, a lower low than the debt ceiling debacle.
