Sadly, I find myself in utter agreement with Andrew Sullivan on this one:
One simple conclusion: conservative government really is dead, isn’t it? A conservative government would simply say: we have no control over global oil prices; consumers reap what they sow; companies should be left alone; and if your wallet is empty because of all that gas in your SUV, you’ve learned a useful lesson in self-government. If only Margaret Thatcher were around to punctuate that lecture with a swipe of her handbag.
When Andrew Sullivan makes sense, he makes sense, and sadly, he’s right on the money with that.
Is it really too much to ask to have some grown-ups in charge of our politics for a change? Really?
