An ANWR observation: It looks like a small part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will be opened for oil drilling when the budget is passed.
I watched video of Democratic opponents of the move complain that there wouldn't be nearly enough oil produced to make any dent in gasoline prices or our dependence on foreign oil.
Comically, many of these Democrats are the same individuals who, in the past few weeks, had been demanding President Bush open up the spigot on the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in an effort to lower gas prices.
For the record: There's more oil in ANWR than there is in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
