Deficit Hawk? Get Behind the Climate Bill.

Lest it prove true that "deficit," like "Constitution," is just Another campaign buzzword GOP candidates pull out to get your emotions overruling your ability to connect cognitive dots, every Republican representative hand-wringing deficits over economic recovery will be out in full support of the Kerry/Lieberman Climate Bill.  Right?

Right?

Nah:

So I get an email announcing that Kerry's energy bill reduces the deficit by some rounding error over the next 10 years according to the CBO. It depressed me because it made me realize Kerry and his people actually think deficit hawks genuinely care about the deficit. More than that, this piece of information won't even stop them from claiming that the bill "costs too much" or whatever.

People may oppose the bill for a variety of reasons, including simply a desire for this Congress to achieve nothing, but caring about the deficit is not one of them no matter what they say.
It's unbelievable how gullible they think we are (and how a few of you keep proving them right on that).
