Quote of the Day

“Frankly, my toilets don’t work in my house, and I blame you.”
--Senator Rand Paul addressing Kathleen Hogan (deputy assistant secretary for energy efficiency at the Energy Department), Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources hearing, March 10, 2011


Later in the hearing:
He said that department standards on energy-efficient refrigerators and toilets, for example, don’t work. “We don’t even save any money,” Mr. Paul said. “We have to flush the toilet 10 times before it works.”
