Don’t Drill … Just Send Money – Update

Today’s media m0ment took place at the staged town meeting in Florida. A local municipal official took the mic to first praise her man … and then to ask for money for a new commuter railroad … cause she

a. doesn’t like the Arabs,

b. can’t drill for oil locally because the scenery is really cool

c. the economy is in the tank and they still have stuff they really need, like rail

d. all of the above

Guess before you watch.


This is what conservatives are up against. The economy is tanking and municipal officials are still spending … and still restricting the economy in every way possible. Welcome to the new Florida.

UPDATE: Well this woman, unfortunately, may get her wish … on drilling. From Jim Geraghty:

American Petroleum Institute President Jack Gerard today issued the following statement on Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s announcement that he would extend the Outer Continental Shelf Five-Year Plan comment period by 180 days:

“Congress made the American people wait nearly 30 years to address our immediate energy challenges. Secretary Salazar today told the American people they must continue to wait—even though more than two-thirds of them want to tap our vast domestic resources for the benefit of all Americans.

    I’m not really clear on this woman’s position: does she want drilling or not?? /sarcasm

    Can you be brainwashed if you lack a brain?
