I don't know how accurate this transcription is, but Derb claims to have seen the following on Meet the Press:
Sunday, April 30, 2006 :::
Russert, challenging Energy Secretary Sam Bodman: "Oil demand is up. Supply is down. So why are prices rising?"I suspect he's simplifying a little, but it's still funny.
Tim Russert did not ask: "Supply is down, demand is up, yet prices are rising. Why?" He asked: "Supply is down, demand is up, yet _profits_ are rising. Why?" Which is marginally less daft.
