Think more domestic drilling will lower gas prices? It won't. Here is proof.

Think more domestic drilling will lower gas prices? It won’t. Here is proof.

Let’s get something straight…

As President Obama continues on his trek across the country promoting his “All of the above” strategy to our nation’s energy needs, the Associated Press just put out a piece soundly debunking the absurd lie that more domestic drilling is the answer to lower gas prices, something heard 24-7 from the GOP primary candidates.

It’s the political cure-all for high gas prices: Drill here, drill now. But more U.S. drilling has not changed how deeply the gas pump drills into your wallet, math and history show.

A statistical analysis of 36 years of monthly, inflation-adjusted gasoline prices and U.S.

Snyder administration denied appeal on prohibition against signing Consent Agreement with Detroit

Ouch. That’ll leave a mark.

My favorite Michigan judge at the moment, Ingham County Judge William Collette, today issued yet another spanking to the administration of Governor Rick Snyder. The Snyder administration appealed a ruling made an earlier this week barring them from signing a Consent Agreement with Detroit until after a March 29th hearing. That hearing has been postponed twice at the request of the Snyder administration.

Today, Judge Collette denied their appeal. He said he felt “bushwacked” by the state’s request.

An Ingham County Judge this morning denied a request by Gov. Rick Snyder and the Detroit financial review team to lift his order that bars them from entering into a consent agreement with Mayor Dave Bing and Detroit City Council to address the city’s financial emergency until late next week.…

Sarah Palin more popular than ANY GOP primary candidate

Sarah Palin more popular than ANY GOP primary candidate

This oughta be inneresting…

Newt Gingrich said this week that a brokered GOP convention this year is a real possibility and that “a series of brand new players” could emerge. Rick Santorum thinks so, too.

Who might be a lead contender for the nomination if that happens? According to a PPP poll out this week, it’s Sarah Palin.

The talk of a brokered convention never seems to die down and one interesting finding on this poll was that Sarah Palin is far more popular than any of the actual Republican candidates in the race. Her net favorability is +48, with 68% of voters rating her favorably to only 20% with a negative opinion.

Why the Etch A Sketch Will Lead to Even More Lies From Mitt Romney

Why the Etch A Sketch Will Lead to Even More Lies From Mitt Romney

George W. Bush saved the economy almost exactly the same way he caught bin Laden.

Follow @FakeDanSavage

Yesterday should have been Mitt Romney’s day.

He’d won Illinois handily. And then he received the endorsement from Gallant to George W.’s Goofus—Jeb Bush. Then, you know: the Etch A Sketch thing.

Comic John Fugelsang asked Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom if Mitt had moved too far to right. Fehrnstrom then compared his boss to to a device that constantly erases itself. This was a flub, a real Washington gaffe in that someone accidentally told the truth.

As Jonathan Chait tweeted: “Political cynicism is smart.…

Barry Goldwater, the father of American conservativism, predicted Rick Santorum

Barry Goldwater, the father of American conservativism, predicted Rick Santorum

But did they listen? Nope. They did not listen.

This graphic is from MoveOn.org and it almost breaks your heart to know that we could be having a much more reasonable debate about the path forward for America if the Republican party had listened to Barry Goldwater all those years ago:

Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise.…
