[img_assist|nid=12955|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=253|height=300]I guess it's consistent that someone who has recently said he's in favor of global warming would also be in favor of oil drilling wherever it might be possible -- but somehow the idea that someone running for senator from a Great Lakes state would be in favor of oil drilling in the Great Lakes seems a bit much -- Ron Johnson interviewed by Wispolitics -

“You know, the bottom line is we are an oil-based economy.  There's nothing we're going to do to get off of that for many years.  I think we have to be realistic and recognize that fact and, you know, I, I think we have to, get the oil where it is, but we have to do it where it is.”
