Bush gives the International community the finger: Paul Wolfowitz to run World Bank.
Bush gives the Mother Earth the finger: ANWR open for drilling
Update: Here’s the roll call for the vote on ANWR – note that 7 Republicans (plus Jeffords) voted to remove ANWR from the budget bill… but three Democrats didn’t: Akaka and Inoye from Hawaii (what’s up with that?) and Mary Landrieu from Louisiana. Those three votes made the difference … party discipline would have shifted the vote from 49-51 in favor, to 52-48.
If you’re a D in Hawaii or Louisiana, I suggest you complain, loudly. If you’re from a state with a Republican that voted to preserve ANWR, call your Senator up and praise them, enthusiastically.
