Drill, Baby Drill!

Thank you, Rudy Guiliani. The man who can't finish a sentence without using the numbers 911 gave America's mindless a new chant to replace "U-S-A! U-S-A!". Thanks to his introduction of Sarah Palin, the new chant is "Drill, baby drill!"

So wait. The solution for our addiction to a substance is to find closer ways to obtain the junk? Who does this help exactly?

Thomas Friedman wrote that this is like chanting "Typewriter! Typewriter!" at the beginning of the IT revolution. He's right. And I was OK with it when it was just Republicans who were foolish, but...

Yes, that's right! According to Time, House Democrats passed a bill allowing for off-shore drilling last night. What maroons! Why don't the Democrats just leave town. Shouldn't the majority party control the debate on most issues? It seems like the Republicans and Bush can do whatever they want.

Yes, the majority of people want off-shore drilling. A majority of people want greater government service. That same majority also doesn't want to pay more taxes. If we ruled by majority, our country wouldn't have lasted twenty years.

Leadership, people. It's why we elect you. Stand up for what you know to be right!
