Among the headstones in the graveyard of right-wing slogans one is sure to come across “Drill, Baby, Drill”. A chant recited and popularized by she who would become the most spectacular flame-out in recent American political history. High oil prices during the presidential campaign had the Johnny Rebs in their Ford F350s looking for answers, and more importantly, somebody to blame. Sarah Palin confirmed their suspicions by laying responsibility at the feet of Teh Librulz who stood in the way of offshore drilling (because apparently only hippie liberals own beach front property). Further “proof” was provided by a decrease in crude prices after Bush rescinded the Executive Order banning offshore drilling (which, btw, hasn’t resulted in any increase in domestic crude production). Of course the economy was swirling down the toilet at the time taking demand along with it but that was something you weren’t supposed to say lest you hurt W’s feelings by suggesting that he actually be responsible for something. And besides, the recession was a “media myth” that the liberals were trying to talk us into, remember?
