ANWR, Round ?

(Check out this MUST SEE Bob Smigel Cartoon on Crooks & Liars entitled "Media-Opoly": Beyond brilliant, and a parody of the old "Schoolhouse Rock" bits.)

On Monday (in the "Fred Barnes" post below), I wrote:
Final thought: A lot of Neo-con policies are generated and tested via the Weekly Standard. Get ready for a new round of calls for drilling in ANWR.
It didn't take long, people.

A freakin' day.

From Our Kid's appearance in front of the "Renewable Fuels Association" on Tuesday:
One of the issues, as you know, that has been confronting Congress is ANWR. And I fully recognize that the passage of ANWR will not increase the oil supply immediately.

But it's also important to understand that if ANWR had been law a decade ago, America would be producing about a million additional barrels of oil a day, and that would increase our current level of domestic supply by 20 percent.

We've got to be wise about energy policy here in America.
That's code for, "You people are gonna have to bend over for the energy companies."
We've got to make sure that we protect the environment, but we've also got to make sure that we find additional supplies of crude oil in order to take the pressure off the price of crude, which takes the pressure off the price of gasoline at the pump.

Convenience Theory -- When two or more entities profit/benefit from a seemingly random event...those entities may have, uh, played a part in that "random" event. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge, eh, eh, eh?

More later...
