ANWR: Vast Pestilential Wasteland Update

One the issues that we’ve been tracking off and on here at EdDriscoll.com HQ is the ongoing fight to allow oil drilling in the area of Alaska that Jonah Goldberg once dubbed “America’s Vast Pestilential Wasteland” .

You’d think that the left would favor such drilling, especially since they’re driving around in cars with “NO BLOOD FOR OIL” bumperstickers–but they’re not: stasis is a way of life for the conservative left.

Fortunately, the issue may be a moot point in the Senate, thanks to the growing Republican majority there.
