Democrats Cave on Offshore Drilling.
You know, I sometimes wonder what the point of possessing a Congressional majority is when said majority bends over every time the Republicans say "boo."
I agree with Alex Koppelman over at Salon's War Room when he says that he doesn't know who this helps in the election. It does seem to rob McCain and Palin of their insipid, slightly creepy "Drill, baby, drill!" catch phrase, but, as Koppelman points out, it seems to lend credibility to Republican charges that Democrats are weak and spineless. If you can't stand up to John Boehner, how can you expect the public to show faith in your ability to stand up to Vladimir Putin?
