"Campaigning against the passage of time"

Monbiot describes the elitist advertising coming out of both Bush and Kerry presidential campaign advertising.

I suppose Bush's commercial depicting Kerry-oil-taxed bicycle riders, could have been meaner. He could have had fez-wearing shriners, wheeling around on tricycles.

In the remainder of the piece, George "Quote Machine" Monbiot continues to do his homework.

I am especially intrigued by the forecasts for supply and demand. Even through the past recession, demand and consumption of oil barely made a dent in its monotonically increasing trend. As the spare capacity shrinks, the theoretical demand elasticity curves will be put to the test.

Number of Major oil finds (of over 500 million barrels)
2000 *************
2001 ******
2002 **
2003 (none)
2004 ?

Which quote is more clever?
