The Biden administration plans to ban imports of oil and natural gas from Russia as soon as Tuesday, following days of behind-the-scenes talks where officials studied far-flung ideas for protecting the global economy from an energy shock, four people with knowledge of the matter said.
“Republicans are setting a trap for President Biden. They’re demanding he take actions that will raise gasoline prices — with obvious plans to attack him politically after the prices rise.”
So President Handsome Joe Biden is damned either way, but he is going to do the honorable thing, which we note that the Republicans are not doing (see Scorpion and Frog). We can talk all we want to about oil companies price gouging (which they are already doing), but it never dampens the fact that Possum Hollar is spending its Ameros to fill up their small-dick inadequacy compensation trucks, and election cycles have been lost on less.
It’s going to be rough, Scissorheads. Buckle-up.
