Gang of 10 Sinks Drilling

Just when the Republicans are on the brink of benefiting from being on the right side of the drilling debate, a group of five "courageous" (read: spineless) RINOs, led by the ever-cringing Lindsay Grahamnesty, have sided with Democrats to whisk away the Republican's one winning issue. The proposed senate legislation would pay only lip service to the idea of drilling domestic oil, while actually continuing the status quo level of drilling: zero. This editorial in the WSJ is excellent. Kim Strassel gets it exactly right.

UPDATE: NRO points out the reason for the gang: Ethanol money.
