Good to see OUR politicos aren't the only stupid ones

Remember that dumbass idea to drop the gas tax? Remember how dumb we thought our politicos were for thinking up such a stupid idea? Remember when we longed for those intelligent and urbane European electeds who would never propose something so crass and stupid?

As it turns out, they're just as dumb. Or at least, French President Sarkozy is.

Pandering has now made the great leap over the Atlantic!

That's right... doesn't change the basic economics of a gas tax cut which will drive that income into the oil companies.
