Not Only Is Dr. Monkey Right... his assessment that we're "Not Done Yet" :

"The news that the Iraqi government has cancelled all the no bid oil contracts with western oil companies means that we'll have to stay in Iraq a lot longer than we previously thought. Oil, after all, is what all this was about so we're not going to ever leave until we have control over it." [Emphasis added]

The lies of "Drill, Baby, Drill" are becoming apparent too. A press release from Sen. Ron Wyden's (D-OR) office:
Tuesday, September 9, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Citing projections that natural gas will cost Americans
an average of 22% more this winter
than last, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden asked
Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman to review and revoke the Department of Energy’s
recent order authorizing the export of 98.1 billion cubic feet of Alaskan
natural gas -- enough gas to meet the needs of 1.4 million American families -- to Japan
other Pacific Rim countries.

“The Administration is trying to have it both ways – arguing that we need to drill everywhere because we don’t have adequate energy supplies, while finding that we have so much energy that big oil companies can export it overseas and keep prices here at home higher than they would otherwise be,” wrote Wyden.
It's all about the Republicans in bed with energy monopolies. They're going to do what they want by abusing the American Political process. Liberals have known this for some time, but every Redneck in America would rise up and stone these bastards if they actually knew how they were being so badly screwed.

[Pssst - Yo, Dad, being the latest Republican convert, drop a comment after you read this little doozy.]
