He Must Be Smoking Grassley

In spite of food prices spiraling out of control world wide, partly as an unanticipated (though certainly predictable) result of congressional ethanol mandates, U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) stubbornly persists in insisting that ethanol is part of the solution to the problem of dependence on foreign oil.

Even so, Sen. Grassley is right about one thing. According to The Hill, he "insisted repeatedly that corn farmers aren't to blame." That is true. No one should blame farmers. Blame should be focused on those in Congress who perpetuate this destructive progam in order to pander to their constituents.

Yes, Senator Grassley. That would include you.
