      Politicians and their appointments come & go, but contractors, congressmen, and program managers are forever.

      Nice try, but they can't hide behind Steven Chu.

      The invasion of Iraq was a war crime, a crime against humanity, and a crime against civilization. Prosecute the crime.

        Throw up hands -- "oh well, we just can't have an energy policy?"

          We're screwed.

            Look at healthcare: the insiders and corporatists are just as strong in that area. But we pushed through real reform. Not as good a reform as we should have had, but it's real progress.

            If we could do it with healthcare, we can do it with energy.

              HHS is largely an honest agency and acts in the public interest.

              DOE is rife with corrupt, lying bastards.
