Sorry about being a sort of one trick pony with my last few posts about drilling, but it is the salient political issue of the summer and it is generating a lot of good political theater. This one is from Mitch McConnell, who ran this little maneuver yesterday:
Obviously this is political theater, Ken Salazar was certainly not going to agree on behalf of the entire Democratic party to drill at a set price. In fact his only role here is to represent his party to stop anything real from happening. But Mitch McConnell takes the opportunity to point out that the current Democratic position is that we will not touch offshore oil and oil in ANWR at any price, which is insane. And he does it in a nice quick sound-bite.
Hat tip to Redstate, who points out that the Democrats want Mitch McConnell gone.
