Not so fast W!

Very exciting news: We may not be drilling in the Arctic after all. I am just as shocked as you are but the WSJ tells me:

House GOP leaders agreed last night to strip plans to permit oil drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and in the offshore continental shelf from a $54 billion budget-cutting measure, probably securing the votes to pass the bill today.

One for the good guys! Here is my favorite quote:

"The move is a blow to President Bush, who has made expanded oil exploration a priority since he took office." Too bad! Sucker!
