Which Lindsey Graham Is Real?

Lindsey Graham pretends to be a conservative.

So when he became part of the "Gang of 10" which submarined the House Republicans' drive for drilling, he followed his usual Lefty inclination.

But now he SEEMS to be back on the side of drilling; he is one of 35 Republicans to have signed this letter:

It is our hope that Democrats and Republicans will stand together to support American Energy Freedom Day on October 1, 2008. On this day, the current prohibitions on oil and gas exploration off the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and in the oil-shale fields of the West will expire, giving Americans the freedom to access their own energy and providing them with relief from sky-high prices at the pump.

We strongly encourage you to allow the expiration of these prohibitions on American energy exploration and production, as scheduled under current law, and we will actively oppose any attempt to extend them. Now is not the time to deny Americans access to their own energy supply

So, Lindsey: which way does your hair blow today?
