Betty’s right. The American people in cynically whipped-up news-cycle crowds, are just downright stupid. A danger to themselves and OTHERS, which would include me and my kids. . .so if Sarah Palin is the patron saint of Big Oil and Stupid People, this is what her ticket’s America would be like?

From the afternoon update to my Tallahassee Democrat, too late to save me innocently venturing out into the middle of bedlam:
. . .Rumors of a fuel shortage spread like wildfire across the state, prompting Agriculture and Consumers Services Commissioner Charlie Bronson to call a late afternoon press conference.
“There is no fuel shortage in Florida,” Bronson said. “There’s hundreds of millions of gallons available.”
. . .A fuel panic swept Gainesville on Thursday, where long gas lines spilled over onto a busy thoroughfare, tempers flared and the police were called, said Randy Bly, a spokesman for AAA Auto Club South.
“Our office has been flooded with calls,” Bly said “This was consumer -driven, it was like a run on the bank. There really is no shortage, we are well supplied. . .”
