Mike Munger, excluded (we repeat) from the debate, e-mailed his critique of this charade:
The offshore oil drilling "issue" is a gimmick. There will no effect, zero, on prices in N.C. The governor of N.C. needs to work to make sure that HIGH prices have the economic benefit of encouraging the development of alternative energy sources.
Gosh. A man running for office who dares to tell the truth.
