House Republicans are forming a coalition to talk about energy priorities. They're calling it the Guild to Load Our Business Associates with Lucre While Also Realizing Many International Net Gains, or GLOBALWARMING. Ha ha, just kidding! They're calling it the House Energy Action Team, or HEAT. WHAT? THAT IS NOT EVEN BETTER. Given that the coalition is pushing to expand oil drilling, the name is appropriate, but it's rare for politicians to be so forthright. Next we look forward to a Republican immigration task force called Force Unfamiliar Countries' Kinsmen Out For Freedom.
