Oh snap.  Git yo bud light, chicken wangs and peach cobbler, the GOP has an energy bill, people!!

This do nothing Republican Congress (with an approval rating that has slid below 20% in the latest Gallup poll)--I mean, I'm just saying--has finally come up with an earth-shaking, innovative, futuristic energy bill.

Um, they are totally dissatisfied with the 2007 law requiring that um, light bulbs be  30% more efficient.  Oh wait, did I say light bulbs?  That's right cousin, the new light bulbs are too darn efficient!!!

You see, the GOP needs to understand that their voters in Southern Mississippi loves to pay 75% more to light their homes because the utility companies could use that money because um--- it's about freedom brother.

Now even though, "A February poll by USA Today found that nearly three out of four Americans have purchased energy-efficient light bulbs and 84 percent said they were "satisfied" or "very satisfied", it's essential that Americans retain their rights to give more money to utility companies--especially the ones owned by the Koch brothers.

While we know that this current nuttery won't pass (just like none of their other laughable ideas)---oh wait, they did read the constitution so--um, I think that counts for something, right?

Listen, I have a solution for the tea party who is demanding to pay more for their utilities.  they can just forget this light bulb legislation and require that all Americans must have at least one window open when running their air conditioners.

The results would be the same, they could give more money to the utility companies and the world would be back in order.

Again, congratulations are due for this do nothing GOP congress for this um, comprehensive energy light-bulb bill.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
