Good for Alaska!

According to Fox News, Alaska governor Murkowski has decided to try to find oil next to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Since the tree huggers (or caribou huggers in this case) are styming efforts to drill in ANWR and help ease America's dependence on foreign oil, Murkowski figures he will drill on state land next to ANWR and see what they find. With luck they will hit a huge oil reserve and there will be nothing Greenpeace can do about it. 99% of Americans couldn't find ANWR on a map and will never see it. Yet eco-wackjobs in Manhattan and L.A. have decreed it off limits to drilling. It could fall off the face of the earth tomorrow and nobody would ever know. Unfortunately the same can't be said for L.A.
