Gov. Sarah Palin played the Absolute Moral Authority Cardtm to tell Sen. Harry Reid (Doucebag-NV) to drill in ANWR (PDF). Allah has a post on the letter here, but I think he missed the most interesting part:
Yet there is an even more important point. The location and quality of oil production are changing world geopolitics. Countries that produce significant quantities of oil and natural gas are gaining in power and prestige. Several of these countries have objectives and value systems that are antithetical to U.S. interests. We are becoming increasingly dependent on these insecure sources to our long-term detriment. Further, it has become clear that U.S. petrodollars are financing activities that are harmful to America and to our economic and military interests around the world.One of the biggest concerns people have with putting Gov. Palin as McCain's vice president is that she has no foreign policy experience*. I think this is a savvy way for Palin to both raise her national profile on an important issue and get on record on a foreign policy issue.
Keep it up, Palin!
*Apparently she lacks the foreign policy acumen and experience of Govs. Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty, and Mitt Romney despite the fact that, as Captain Ed notes, the state she governs is the only one bordered by two foreign nations.
