Thomas Friedman on “drill, baby, drill”

I was remided of George Clooney’s Good Night and Goodluck:

We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the results. We proclaim ourselves indeed as we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it continues to exist in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad, and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his, he didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it, and rather successfully.

(Just replace junior Senator from Wisconsin with Bush, McCain, Gulianni, etc.)

You’ll understand why once you read Friedman’s article here:
