In the midst of the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan, it has been interesting to see how the world’s leading countries and politicians are responding. If I had even an ounce of hope that Republicans could come around on energy policy in the face of this catastrophe, I think I completely lost it this week. I’ve given up on them,.. well, not all of them, not every single individual who identifies themselves as a Republican, but the Republican leaders in Congress who run the show and essentially order those lower in rank what to do. Mitch McConnell, the Senate’s leading Republican, said this week: “My thought is we ought not to make American domestic policy based on an event that happened in Japan.” (Yes, because Japan exists in a world with different natural laws than the U.S., right?…)
