The Tire Gauge Irony

Driving around, looking for a place to add air to my tires, reminded me of the whole Tire Gauge incident during the presidential campaign. You know, the one where McCain's team created custom tire gauges and said that was Obama's energy policy.

It struck me today of the irony in that act. Here's the Republican party, the one who wants less government, mocking the idea the individuals can take action in this energy crisis, and instead is pushing the notion that all you really need to do is trust Government and Big Companies to fix the problem (aka: Drill, Baby, Drill!).

Hmmm, that's actually more than ironic, that's disgraceful.

Yes, it was a cute move. But in the big picture, it was really sad.
