House votes to drill -- where there's no oil

Yesterday, the House voted 236-189 for a bill that would open up a miniscule portion of the outer continental shelf for drilling, allow a few states along the southern eastern seaboard to allow drilling, but would give the states that allowed it no benefit -- and therefore no incentive -- to allow it.

This farce of a bill will die if we can keep the accomodationists in the Senate in line to filibuster this farce.

How can you tell it's a farce? Well, when the rabid environmentalists don't have a problem with it, you know it's not a serious bill.

When you've got 2/3 of the American public on your side, you don't cave.
