#rsrh My NSFW response to Energy Secretary Steven Chu.

On the looming incandescent bulb ban.

In a conference call with reporters, Mr. Chu said the more-efficient bulbs required would save consumers money over the life of the product, even if the up-front price is higher.

“We are taking away a choice that continues to let people waste their own money,” he said.

It’s their money to ‘waste,’ you fucking elitist political appointee*.  Swear to God – and God help us all – we’re probably better off with former lawyers in that particular policy position, after all.  At least that demographic has the mother-wit to not gratuitously insult American consumers…

*I was going to originally write ‘idiot,’ instead – which is also true, in this context: the man’s Nobel Prize isn’t in Economics** – but ‘political appointee’ is just as vicious a sneer when directed against a research scientist, and a good deal harder to counter.

**Although that actually would argue in favor of the man’s intelligence, come to think of it.
