Wshington Protest Over

Darn. Almost as soon as it started, the protest is over.

However, Jim DeMint (SC-R) is talking about a shutdown, unless the Democrats agree to get rid of the drilling ban.
"We don't want the government shutdown to be an issue, but the fact is the Democrats are so overconfident that they're willing to talk about a ban and they're willing to talk about raising taxes on gasoline, so this is just pretty incredible," said Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican who is circulating a letter encouraging colleagues to demand that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, strike the drilling moratorium from the budget resolution.
The public is on the side of drilling. It's time to let your Congreessmen hear from you (button on the Blogroll, near the bottom).
