I don’t know if everyone else will find this as hilarious as I do, but here’s a story about Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) criticizing McCain’s energy positions as “inconsistent.” You see, McCain opposes ethanol subsidies because he thinks subsidies distort markets. But he supports massive subsidies for nuclear.

So, is Grassley’s point that McCain should oppose all subsidies?

Uh, did I mention Grassley is from Iowa?
