Going...gone

The Cantwell Amendment removing ANWR drilling goes down in defeat 51-49. Thank three turncoat Democrats for that: Inouye, and Akaka of Hawaii and Landrieu of Louisiana. There's more fight to come and with good reason. These straw man and false cause fallacies that dominate the Republican party thinking can't stand much light. We'll keep shining it in their eyes. Even with all the oil going out of the country should it go through they still make the false claim of energy inependence. Can't happen from this little symbolic nugget.

To their credit Republicans John McCain and Norm Coleman voted for the amendment to remove drilling from the budget. And the Maine delegation of Snowe and Collins.
