    One of the "Arenas" on politico.com is discussing whether it's time for Congress to drop the cap and trade energy legislation.

    This is my favorite political response so far this season, perhaps because it quotes from the funniest of all the Monty Python hilarities:

    "To advocate that Congress should drop cap-and-trade is rather like advising that we should stop worrying about Y2K. In his amusing campaign ad (one of the best of 2010), Gov. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) shoots a copy of the Waxman-Markey bill, but the fact is he’s shooting a critter that’s been dead for some time.

    Cap-and-trade has gone the way of the parrot bought in the Monty Python sketch: 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch, 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!!' ”
