"Drill, Drill, Drill"

Via the Baseball Crank, we have this article by Newt Gingrich on how Norway has become a leader in offshore drilling--thus helping it to avoid the energy crisis so many Americans are worrying about and this article by Larry Kudlow indicating a strong willingness on the part of the American electorate to having increased drilling. Note the following passage from the Kudlow article:
. . . Recent polling data from Gallup show the percentage of voters blaming oil companies for skyrocketing gasoline prices has dropped from 34 percent to 20 percent over the past year. At the same time, support for more drilling in U.S. coastal and wilderness areas has increased to 57 percent from 41 percent.
This indicates a level of policy sophistication that is, alas, all too absent from our political leadership class.
