A Campaign For More Oil

It seems that the main theme of the GOP this year will be that more domestic oil will solve all our problems. From Palin's interview with Time:

“What, on a real practical level here, the GOP has got to do between now and the election is to convince Americans that it is our energy policy that is best for our nation and the nation's future, that if we are to become energy independent and if we are to become a more secure nation then we had better start supplying our very very hungry markets across the nation with American supplies of energy.... That, of course, has been a problem for the GOP. And a problem up here in Alaska. We have state lawmakers serving time in prison right now... other lawmakers whom the FBI is probing right now... because they have been found, some, to be corrupt in oil and gas issues, having taken bribes. That does not bode well for the GOP.”
