Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

What is a Geo-Green?
Tom Friedman writes an interesting piece (I know I use that phrase way too often) on his theory of speeding political and economic reform in places like Iran. It's called the "Geo-Green" alternative.
The basic premise is that countries like Iran that have huge oil-dependent revenues making up for poor economies would be forced to open up and create jobs if the world's dependence on their oil was reduced. Thus "Geo-Greens" push for conservation, renewable/alternative energy, in an effort to dramatically reduce the price of oil in the long run.
The concept is old, but the term is new (at least to me). Kerry talked about alternative energy commitments during the campaign. Let's see if Bush mentions it in the SOTU on Weds.
