They just won't quit trying...

Been sitting on this article for a little while, but I finally decided to break it out. In yet another display of extreme callousness towards the will of the American people (namely those who don't think we should ruin every part of the planet for the sake of profits and our own comfort):

President Bush on Tuesday lifted a ban on new oil and gas drilling in Alaska's Bristol Bay, a decision that angered environmentalists and could provoke a battle with the Democratic-controlled Congress over energy policy.

The 5.6 million acres of the bay on the west side of the Alaska Peninsula just north of the Aleutian Islands have been off-limits for energy exploration since 1989, after the Exxon Valdez spill.

Somebody is going to have to keep track of every action the Bush administration has taken since inauguration in 2001 and remind us to undo all of them.

There's that Bush doctrine of confront the opponent at every turn. If they think that pressure over gas prices is going to push Democrats to do something they've mostly been opposed to for the last five years, they've got another thing coming.
