More on the Gas Tax Holiday

The Washington Post reports: Economists Share Obama's View.

This headline reminds me of a story from the election of 1956:

Woman in crowd: Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person.
Adlai Stevenson: That's not enough, madam, we need a majority!

Update: Len Burman emails me:
Yesterday I was on the NewsHour to talk about the gas tax holiday. I asked if there was another guest and the producer said, "We tried, but we couldn't find anyone to argue the other side (that the gas tax holiday made sense)."
