…Sen. Mark Warner “had a root canal today,” said spokesman Kevin Hall. “The irony is that it’s ‘drill, baby, drill’ day.” (No TV sound bites, alas, to support Obama’s offshore-oil decision.) Warner will recover at home, then head to events in southern Virginia next week.
Good one by Kevin Hall, and get well soon to Mark Warner!
P.S. For Mark Warner’s real reaction to the offshore oil drilling announcement yesterday, see here. In short, Warner believes “This is good news and a positive step forward as we work to expand our nation’s domestic energy production.” Hmmm…root canal or offshore oil drilling, tough choice.
