Classic Pelosi

Demonstrating the kind of political acumen that has brought Congress the lowest approval ratings in American history, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has revealed her plan to allow a vote on legislation that would permit companies to drill for oil in areas where there is no oil.

Yes, that is Speaker Pelosi's answer to high prices for gasoline and the risks inherent in dependence on foreign sources of oil: play a political game where you pretend to do something, but in fact provide absolutely zero solution to the problem. This follows her previous work to make sure that there was no vote at all on a meaningful energy bill prior to the summer recess.

It is no wonder that Americans are looking again at the possibility of a Republican Congress.
