What's that about the gas tax?

Yesterday, I opined as to what sort of punishment should be doled out to Senator Mark Norris (R) for attacking the liberty of Tennesseans with a hairbrained scheme of putting GPS trackers on all of our vehicles as a way of taxing the bejeezus out of us. (Similarly, Mark Rose wonders why "tax reform" amongst non-conservatives always involves raising taxes and not lowering them.)

Say Uncle weighed in through an excellent post - he supported kicking members of the Senate Transportation Committee in the - well, uh - crotchular region.

Blue Collar Republican was shocked - until he found out that Norris was involved.

Now Terry Frank says that Norris is backtracking like Michael Jackson having passed a Toys 'R Us.

So, should we celebrate Norris' reversal? I guess, but it doesn't change the fact that he proposed the idea in the first place, or at the very least was mulling it over. That alone should be worth some sort of public shaming, doesn't it?
