Bush and McCain: Effect of Drilling is "Psychological"

As if we needed even more evidence that McCain is trying as hard as possible to set himself up for a third Bush term, with policies that largely tow the Bush/Rove/Party line, we get this.

Remember back when John McCain admitted that lifting the ban on offshore drilling will have no short-to-medium-term impact on anything and will only help to create a positive "psychological" effect?

I don’t see an immediate relief, but I do see that exploitation of existing reserves that may exist — and in view of many experts that do exist off our coasts — is also a way that we need to provide relief. Even though it may take some years, the fact that we are exploiting those reserves would have a psychological impact that I think is beneficial.

Well, our Fearless Leader, Mr. Bush, today gave a rare press conference and basically said exactly the same thing!
I readily concede [that new offshore drilling] won't produce a barrel of oil tomorrow, but it will reverse the psychology.

Anyone have any hope the media will report on this? Somebody get me my blood pressure medication.
