You scratch my back...


Noam Scheiber at The New Republic's campaign blog, The Stump, comments today on the Tom Friedman article criticizing the knucklehead gas tax cut Hillary and her partner-in-crime John McCain have been touting.

Says Friedman:

The McCain-Clinton proposal is a reminder to me that the biggest energy crisis we have in our country today is the energy to be serious — the energy to do big things in a sustained, focused and intelligent way.
Scheiber adds this comment:

Obama has been double-teamed by Clinton and McCain for over two months now. But there's an upside to getting hit by two people at once: it allows you to tie them together in unflattering ways.
Actually, I think Hillary and McCain are doing the tying-together part themselves, and it seems worse to me than unflattering.

Is it me or is it hard to tell Clinton from Lieberman these days?
