Leave it to Johnny McCain to fuck logic by inferring that a) the surge is too complimacated for the plebes to understand and then b)Bush's executive order to offshore drill here is what caused the drop in gas prices. As Tom says:
Isn’t this great? Do you realize what this means??? Just think of the incredible implications of McCain’s revelation. We don’t need to drill for oil any more!. All we have to do is say we’re going to, and — Presto! Lower prices!
Even Peroxide Perino is a little mystified by his assertions:
The White House didn't go that far. Presidential spokeswoman Dana Perino said the price drop also could reflect diminished demand.
"I don't know if we fully deserve the credit," Perino said.
Does McCain in his quieter moments wonder why that goddamn albatross is hung squarely around his neck?
