Throwing oil in our eyes

Much like the summer gas tax holiday, opening new oil fields to drilling off the US coast will do nothing to lower gas prices, according to everything I've read. John McCain, however, has proposed both ideas, not because they are sound but because he assumes that we are stupid. Let's hope Americans are smarter than to fall for this kind of campaigning.

I will read some more, but I am not going to believe anything from World Net Daily, a reactionary site which has, in the past, published stories that said god was behind 9/11 and that eating soy makes you gay!
