Just as oil prices appear to be stabilizing, a major oil pipeline has to be shut down in Alaska. It is just coincidence? Wasn’t Congress getting ready to hold hearings on the outrages profits at the oil companies are raking in? Maybe I’m just being paranoid.
Dan Balz, columnist for the Washington Post, today is talking about the significance of the Lamont-Lieberman race in Connecticut. Unfortunately, I think Mr. Balz misses the point. The point isn’t whether you supported the war in 2002 or not, the electorate will forgive you for that. The point is the lack of criticism over the last 18 months for the missteps, miscues and miscalculations of the War in Iraq. Lieberman support of the Bush administration’s policies has been almost total and absolute. Many Republicans have not been that supportive. That is the point of this election. The point is not the popularity of the blogosphere, in my opinion.
