Newark Mayor Cory Booker is handsome, approachable, and once saved a lady from a fire — he’s basically the Ryan Gosling of politics. And one of the reasons people like him, even people like me who know next to nothing about his job performance, is that he’s always willing to make jokes about himself, and about the fundamental absurdity of being a politician. Which is why I had to love his explanation of why he supports wind power.

That sound you just heard is a couple hundred wind-powered congressional gasbags rethinking their positions on alternative energy.
