Fox News Panel Furious With (President Bush) Law Phasing Out 100w Incandescent Bulb

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - With the impending phase-out of traditional light bulbs in favor of energy efficient bulbs, Bret Baier asked the Fox News All Star Panel for their thoughts and they were not happy in the least. Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes were each upset with the “nanny state gone amok,” but at least had humorous reactions to the potential need to hoard old bulbs.

Charles Krauthammer: “How many people does it take to change a CFR lightbulb? Eleven. One to screw it in, and ten to help you with the hazmat suit and to clear the children and small dogs out of an exclusion zone of about, I don’t know, 20 miles. This is insane.”
