The line is open



You're up.

Feel free to heap abuse on all those states rights Republicans in Louisiana (just saw the whore-hopping Sen. David Vitter on TV, to name one) who suddenly love the federal government and want it to save them -- right now -- from the offshore oil deluge. The feds absolutely must step up in this catastrophe. But we can't starve the beast and expect to turn on the tap only as we need it, despite what Jindal, Vitter and the rest of that gang would have you believe. You gotta tax, baby, tax, before the feds can spend, baby, spend. And we need to get tougher on oil company regulation, too, no matter how friendly Louisiana may be inclined to be to polluters. (As friendly as Arkansas has proved to be to the gas frackers. Lesson here, folks.)
