Three cheers for Maria for saving ANWAR from drilling in the defense bill, and also for leading the charge for biodiesel and other alternate fuels. She has both sides of the issues nicely covered by trying to reduce our consumption of petrochemicals to obviate the need for more oil exploration. It’s nice to see someone in Congress proposing a solution while opposing pork for Ted Stevens and more profits for big oil. It’s always entertaining to see Stevens make an ass out of himself, and choosing to not swear in testifying oil execs and screaming at Maria for politely requesting it was another in the countless media bites that epitomize the arrogance of the most powerful politicians on the hill.
