Has Anybody Authored a Bill?

As I listen to the three presidential candidates parse words and gnash their teeth over a summertime gas tax holiday, I just wonder whether anybody has actually authored a bill in the US House or Senate.

Are the candidates talking about the summer of 2008? Um, Memorial Day is May 26th, less than three weeks away. They had better get cracking.

Personally, I think a lot of Americans see this idea for the empty sales pitch that it is. If John McCain were serious, he'd be in Washington pushing this bill through committees to get to a floor vote.

Please, give us more credit. Nobody is fooled by this story.
