Growing Joementum for Gas Sanctions against Iran

So says David Sanger in the New York Times today, echoing reports late last week from Ha'aretz that the administration is weighing throwing its support behind Joe Lieberman's bill (S. 908) that would impose gasoline sanctions against Iran:
Classy as always, the New York Times -- while reporting on the bill -- somehow neglects to acknowledge by name either Lieberman or either of his two main cosponsors -- Evan Bayh and Jon Kyl. It does, however, find room to quote its old buddy Chris Dodd -- one of the handful of Senators who has yet to cosponsor S. 908, and who -- despite chairing the Banking Committee -- didn't actually show up at the hearing held there last week on Iran sanctions.
