“Energy Week”

Wa Po sums up this week’s theatrics pretty well:

THIS IS “ENERGY Week” down at the House of Representatives. Members are due to vote on at least four and possibly more bills, all related to domestic energy production, all designed to provoke the Senate to pass broad energy legislation, all designed, perhaps, to provide fodder for the election campaign. Some are also calling this Congress’s answer to high gasoline prices—but if this is the answer, maybe it’s time to ask whether Congress even understands the question…

Go read, all worthwhile.  As a note though, it would be nice if the Post could be troubled to identify this as the work of the GOP Congress rather than “Congress.”
