True to his word, Scalise is a 100% Dubya Ass Kisser, voting with only 25 of his fellow ass-kissers against the bill to temporarily halt the daily shipment of thousands of barrels of oil into the government's emergency reserve.

"The votes were symbolic, in their strong bipartisan support, of lawmakers' frustrations at not being able to agree on anything more substantive in response to public anger over near $4 a gallon gasoline and oil prices in the $125 a barrel range."
"We are buying the most expensive crude oil in the history of the world and storing it," said Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D. "When American consumers are burning at the stake by high energy prices, the government ought not be carrying the wood."
