I'm always fascinated with how much people hate Congress and politicians generally. Our elections are sometimes the collective intellectual equivalent of stop punching yourself, stop punching yourself! It's a representative republic, people.
If I was too polite in my previous post, let this spell it out for you:
That guy right there is going to be in charge of energy policy coming out of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Don't anyone ever preach to me about the "wisdom of the electorate". That "wisdom" just gave you a guy who believes that we're cool with God on global warming because he already flooded the earth way back in the day. Remember Noah and stuff?
My guess is we're in for two years of clips a lot like this one. Entertaining, yes. But I'd have preferred leadership like Keith Fitzgerald, who had groundbreaking (not to mention post-partisan) ideas on alternative energy.
