GOOD TO SEE JOHN KERRY COMING AROUND (maybe) on the subject of ANWR drilling. Drilling for oil there isn't the answer to all our energy problems, but it's not nothing, and the environmental movement's "No! Never!" position was always ridiculous. When in God's name did the caribou's right to an untouched arctic wasteland become sacrosanct? Ahh, well. I have to admit, I wish that Kerry's latest flip-flop were motivated by something more noble than a desire to suck up to the Teamsters, but I suppose I'll take what I can get.

Now the real question: if he does make this flip, how will the enviros react?
