Dear Mr. McCain...

read this, do your research, and please shut up. This entire offshore drilling thing makes me sick to my stomach. And Mr. Obama's shift in his position does not make it better.

We have a saying over here which goes like this: Sometimes it is hard to see the forest because there are too many trees in the way. America can keep pretending that silly measures like off shore drilling will resolve the energy crisis. Gas is $10 a gallon over here and it will only be a matter of time until the price for oil in the U.S. will reach similar heights. When I read Thomas Friedman's op-ed in the Times yesterday I wasn't really sure whether he was serious. All the stuff and policies he was so amazed about had been standard for a decade, not only in Denmark but all over Europe. And yes it is possible to ride a bike in the rain...

The sad thing is that McCain's stupid push for drilling forced Obama to reconsider. While I understand Mr. Obama's reasoning I wished he would have stayed tough like he did when Hillary was proposing a summer gas tax break...another one of these brilliant ideas for all those people who got used to turning a blind eye to reality...

McCain's campaign is hitting it's stride in a frightening way...On an unrelated note, it's worth noting that while obama is viewed as the effete liberal elitist it was McCain plastic trophy wife who sprained her wrist shaking hands and went to the hospital.
