Echoes of the peanut man: déjà vu all over again

A blast from the past, courtesy of the Department of Energy's official website (emphasis mine):

* Price controls on oil
* A windfall profits tax
* Taxpayer-funded boondoggles on solar energy
* Taxpayer-funded boondoggles on synthetic fuels

Yes, ripped from today's headlines are the very strategies set in motion by the worst president in history: James Earl Carter. Let's pause a moment here and reminisce about 8% unemployment, 16% inflation, and 17% auto loan rates.

So when today's Democrats call for these very same measures, let's remember that Barack O'Carter is running for office (I hear that's the name he prefers.)
