Jazz Shaw's post on the latest from Congress and the Strategic Oil Reserve makes me want to bang my head against a wall...

Jazz Shaw/Hot Air: Why now? 

Jimmy Dean and Liz Taylor on the set of Giant, Metaphor?

Off the specific topic of this legislation noted above but go with me on this. An Instapundit/Ed Driscoll post explains how a short fingered vulgarian can dominate a herd of GOP steers.  Or how Republican Bob Corker has, with his sponsored Iran bill last Spring, almost guaranteed the passage of the disastrous Obama/Kerry's Iran deal.  I am definitely not suggesting Trump (as an individual) is the answer, but I do admire that he can at least fight back with opponents and the media and we need to do a better job vetting candidates and picking politicians who listen to voter's concerns.  

And we wonder how Supreme Court justices like Anthony Kennedy and John Roberts keep getting nominated by Republican presidents and Republican controlled congresses.  Did you ever note the Democrats never seem to make the same mistake? Well, at least occasionally the Republicans get it right. And of course, the Democrats knew (which is why they went all out trying to Bork him).  

I am going to throw out some more images of Elizabeth Taylor on the set of Giant (and then I may start drinking heavily like she and Burton did in Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe...)

Update: AoSHQ: Bob Corker is an idiot.  Instapundit/Ed Driscoll have contempt for Congress too.

Rule 5 and FMJRA

Instapundit: Talking about America's Sunbelt and Air Conditioning, something stinks in Waco, and the Superbowl of Super Holes
Smitty: Ted's Testicles and McConnell's Soft Hands
Hot Air: Cruz: Mitch McConnell is a liar and our majority is all about cronyism (truth hurts) and This is War
