Bad Day in the Rose Garden
Its very easy, in our chaotic world, to lose track. Did you know, for instance, that ER is still on television? That The Phantom of the Opera is still on Broadway? That Hugh Hefner is still dating? It was in this spirit that I looked up at CNN on Wednesday and noted that George W. Bush is still the president.

In a major change of policy, the president announced that he wanted to end a federal ban on offshore drilling and open up drillers access to the outer continental shelf. He repeatedly referred to the outer continental shelf as the O.C.S., making the whole proposal sound a little like a search for energy sources in an old teen TV series.
There was also the matter of John McCain. Poor McCain has been trying desperately to convince the public that theres a vast, vast gulf between him and the current administration. Its been tougher than he expected.

In the past, McCain parted company with Bush on everything from torture to taxes. But now hes fudged some of those differences, and completely caved on others.
