You know, I seriously thought McCain's torture bill was a waste of time and it was rather aggrivating that he had the balls to attatch it to the appropriations bill so people couldnt vote against it without denyig the troops what they wanted. But then i guess that technique isnt so bad since Anwar is now open for drilling because the Alaskan Senator got so mad about McCains bill that he added the Anwar bill to it also. So lets celebrate for the opportunity to search for our own oil source. The democrats wanted the torture bill so they could appear to be against torture. Fine. they got it but in doing so they ended up supporting anwar drilling. Got to love irony.
