You know that dishonest Bush campaign claim that Kerry "proposed" a 50 cent gas tax because he once floated the idea in a newspaper interview, never following it up with an actual, well, proposal?

Turns out in the May 24, 1999 issue of Fortune, Bush's top economic adviser Gregory Mankiw advocated--wait for it--a 50 cent gas tax.

Mankiw said this would lead to more rapid economic growth, less traffic congestion, safer roads, and reduced risk of global warming. He called it "the closest thing to a free lunch that economics has to offer."

Man, those Bush people just keep looking more and more dishonest, don't they?
