Perhaps the GOP can pass this test

In what might finally be a vicroty for the GOP owned congress, there is exected to be a vote on ANWR in the next day or two. The leftists including Kerry are in a tizzy, trying to get grass roots activism out in force to shake up a few Senators. We'll see if it works. A vote is expected by tomorrow.

Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, who for more than two decades has been unable to
persuade Congress to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil companies,
said he was optimistic about the prospects.
“We believe we have the votes,”
Stevens said at a news conference. Alaska officials view the refuge’s oil as
replacing dwindling shipments from the aging Prudhoe Bay fields on the North
Plan added to budgetSeeking to sidestep a Democratic filibuster that
would require 60 votes to overcome, Republican leaders have put the Alaska
refuge provision into a budget document that is immune to a filibuster under
Senate rules.

I honestly don't understand the opposition to the drilling. I honestly think that the left simply wants us to have Flintstone cars, and animal operated vacuum cleaners. Wait, no that won't work PETA would be pissed. I really don't know what they want. No oil drilling, no wind power, no nuclear plants, opposition to coal plants in Wisconsin...

Do they really want to force us only see at night when they toke a bowl? How can they play their Dead, man, if there is no electricity to run their DAT player?
