Where is Sarah Palin's and the rest of the Republican's "Drill Baby Drill" now?

Lest we forget the Vice-Presidential debate in 2008:

Palin to Biden: "You even called...environmentally friendly drilling offshore as raping the outer continental shelf. With new technology, with tiny footprints even on land, it is safe to drill and we need to do more of that."

On her own Blog, Sarah Palin now wants everyone to think that she truly cares about all the men and women whose livelihood is being devastated by the "environmentally friendly drilling offshore" that she and her drill-baby-drill friends supported two years ago:
As an Alaskan, I can speak from the heart about the tragedy of an oil spill. For as long as I live, I will never forget the day the Exxon-Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef and millions of gallons of North Slope crude poured into the waters of our beautiful Prince William Sound. The spill was devastating to so many Alaskans who, like my own family, make their living on the water from our commercial fishing industry. “Heartbreaking” was the word my husband Todd, an Alaska Native and trained oil spill responder, used to describe the scene as we watched it unfold on land and water that we feel is sacred.

In the event that Sarah Palin attempts to make a presidential run in 2012, we can come back to this post and review her previous stance on the matter: *Note, the author of this post is well aware of the propagandistic elements in the following video, but believes they are no more or less powerful than the propaganda spewing from the opposing opinion, which inspired the artist who put it together (unaffiliated with There Is No Spoon) to share with all.

Drill Baby Drill... Drill Baby Drill... Drill Baby Drill... Drill Baby Drill... Spill Baby Spill... Spill Baby Kill... Kill Baby Kill... Drill Baby Drill
