As seen on Twitter:

Extreme Greenies:see now why we push”drill,baby,drill”of known reserves&promising finds in safe onshore places like ANWR? Now do you get it?

As if ecological disasters only happened in offshore drilling. Besides, Palin completely misunderstands the argument against continued drilling; oil is a limited resource, and we need to be reducing our consumption of it, not increasing it. There are lots of useful things we should be conserving the oil for, and we should be replacing it where possible with more sustainable alternatives.

BTW, for those of you on Twitter, I recommend following BPGlobalPR, a hilarious account that tipped me to Palin’s tweet. A sample tweet:

If we’re being accused of being criminals, we want to be tried by a jury of our peers- wealthy execs who don’t give a damn. #fairisfair

UPDATE: Wait – it gets better. Palin repeatedly used “Drill, Baby, Drill” in conjunction with deep water (“outer continental shelf”, where the Deepwater Horizon was) drilling, calling it “safe”. And we have video.
