Blissful Ignorance

The economics of our situation with gasoline is pretty straight forward. Anyone who managed to pass high school economics should pretty much understand it. Our Presidential contenders seem to find that too high a standard. Senator McCain has offered a really dopey suggestion; Senator Obama has even worse ideas; Senator Clinton has descended to new depths of economic nonsense. But I doubt that they’re too far out of step from their colleagues in the Senate. When it comes to economic issues, many of our politicians are blissfully ignorant but nevertheless prepared to fix what they don’t understand. We’d all better pray for gridlock.
