Holy crap

This TNR article by Michele Cottle about Democrats trying to beat up Bush for rising gas prices is oh-so painfully right on. Apparently America Coming Together has gotten into the act now with a recent press release Cottle describes: "Charging that 'the Bush Gas Tax is Real and it is Causing Nightmares for families across the country,' ACT notes that the average family in Columbus, Ohio will pay $98.77 more this year than last to drive to the Grand Canyon. Worse yet, a family in Portland, Oregon, will pay an additional $158.64 to drive to Disney World."

This is such bad political karma I don't know where to begin. Democrats cannot be the party of truth, poised to restore fiscal responsibility and honest choices to national policy while simultaneously pandering to one of the most destructively unrealistic ultimatums in politics today. Stop it. Please.
