McCain, Obama on Energy: Words v. Deeds
Joe Biden thought he was flaying John McCain's approach to energy development when, during the Oct. 2 vice presidential debate, the Delaware Democrat summed up the GOP policy as "drill, drill, drill."
But McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, corrected her opponent. "The chant," she said without a trace of irony, "is 'drill, baby, drill.' "
That adaptation of the '60s race-riot slogan, "burn, baby, burn," swept the Republican convention a month earlier. Delegates' shouts seemed determined to resurrect McCain's failed "drill here, drill now" policy he tried to pass off in summer as a solution to high gasoline prices.
