Cognitive Dissonance

;Lindsay Graham illustrates the amount of bipartisanship he really expects on climate change.
Lindsay Graham, January 27th:

"Realistically, the cap-and-trade bills in the House and the Senate are going nowhere," Graham said. "They're not business-friendly enough, and they don't lead to meaningful energy independence."

Lindsay Graham, February 3rd:

"It's the 'kick the can down the road' approach," said Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. "It's putting off to another Congress what really needs to be done comprehensively. I don't think you'll ever have energy independence the way I want until you start dealing with carbon pollution and pricing carbon. The two are interconnected."

Can anyone explain to me why we should consider Republicans good-faith negotiators on ... anything?
