Drill baby drill! The only way this will ever happen is if the Dems/Republicans in power know their job is on the line in November; including Nancy Pelosi. Piss poor job performance/leadership (9% approval rating) does not equal job security. Either shape up or ship out! It's up to the American people to hold them accountable for their performance. They just might make a conscious effort to hear us when their job security is on the line.

Is everything political with the left?

Lieberman could be trying to do something about oil speculation because it's hurting this country and he thinks it's the right thing to do.

Joe Lieberman is also in trouble with his wife who has complained for several years about his constant all night farting under the bedcovers then fanning them to keep her awake.
Fortunately she has some Airwick handy at bedside but still suffers from sleep deprivation.

Not before Joe baby grabbed all the stock certificates he could get his grubby hands on. Joe leaves no buck unturned. He wants to be sure there's a dead president on one side.

There are some really sick puppies on the left.

They disagree with Lieberman on a single issue (granted it's a very big issue) and now it's scorched earth and take no prisioners for them.

I think if they could put their political hatred aside for a minute they might discover that Joe is trying to do something that will benefit all Americans.
