Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this

Some guy wants SNL to “Decimate” Sarah Palin

I think his name is Chevy Chase? I’m not quite sure who he is… Maybe he was famous before I was born? and not since then… From the video (included below) it seems maybe he was a comedian? I mean he seems to be trying to make jokes, I think. Idk… he looks and sounds like hes about 90 years old. Yet I still can’t imagine how he became famous in the first place? Maybe he was in silent films? Seems to me thats the only way that people could have bared him.

Biden vs Palin so far…

So the number 1s have chosen their number 2s. Lets take a minute to make a video comparison of the two latest video from Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. Here’s biden at a campaign event making a little gaffe and sounding just plain painful… (Bob Casey jr was negative 2 years old at the time) httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN5khF2i2ek&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/30/video-biden-sees-unborn-people/ And here’s Sarah Palin on CNBC sounding smooth and informed… plus she isn’t afraid to directly critique her own party. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GE11URmmnc&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/29/video-palin-knocks-biden-on-drilling-ties-it-to-national-security/ McCain’s pick looks better and better every hour… can you say the same of Obama’s pick?

Huckabee to supporters: Palin pick “pleasant surprise”

Contrary to what others in the conservative community might think it seems that Mike Huckabee isn’t trying to fracture the party or “stir up the same sense of grievance among the Huckheads that finding out Hillary wasn’t vetted stirred up in the PUMAs” it seems that Mike Huckabee is actually quite happy with the VP choice. Here is the message he sent to supporters today: Sarah Palin for Vice President! Today at 12:48pm by Mike Huckabee Sarah Palin is a pleasant surprise for those of us who had hoped that Senator McCain would pick a principled and authentic conservative pro-life

Sarah Palin, The most experienced?

So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start… What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience… That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway? Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor

Pick Pawlenty (or Romney if you must)… AND Lieberman

So, as I’m sure you know, there has been buckets and buckets of speculation over the GOP veepstakes and of course some friendly advice on who the pick should be. Well… now its my turn and honestly it seems like there is only one choice (maybe two), however I have a, not so secret twist, to my analysis. OK, I’m just gonna jump right to the point, pick Pawlenty for VP. He is by far the best choice for you, period. He is pro-life, he is a conservative who won’t piss people like me off, he has more experience than

Barack Obama: Messiah or Greek God?

By now I’m sure that we have all heard the Messianic claims of “The One”. You know, things like “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” or “a light will shine down, from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany and you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack” (outlined ever so subtly in this McCain ad). And its clear by the undying devotion of the Obamatrons that he is not the only one who believes that he has “become a

Obama’s attempt to be as cool as a 12 year old girl fails horribly…

So it seems that Barack Obama’s master plan to text all of his adoring obamatons with his vice presidential pick before anyone else was a complete and total failure (a lot like the pick itself). Yes, you heard it right, the plan heralded by “unbiased” reporters and preteens alike took a turn for the worst last night. Yup apparently supporters who signed up for the special texts were not the first to be notified, despite the promise from the Obama campaign, and not by a long shot. Some of the first reports in the media came around 11pm on the
