Drill baby, drill!

Under the cover of the biggest financial crisis since the Depression, the Dems quietly caved yesterday on offshore oil drilling--taking the topic off the table as a campaign issue. I could care less about off-shore drilling. Most states say they won't allow it, anyway. Most oil companies aren't crazy about drilling past the continental shelf for potentially limited returns. It'll have no effect on gas prices in the long (or short) term. And it won't impact our dependence on foreign oil in the least. It was a nothing measure.
