ANWR Off The Table...... least for now:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives abandoned, at least temporarily, a drive to open Alaska's National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling after concluding on Wednesday the initiative was threatening passage of a huge bill to cut spending.

"ANWR and OCS will be out" of the legislation, said House Budget Committee Chairman Jim Nussle, an Iowa Republican.
They're going to try again later. But I find this amazing. The Senate has always been the hold-up. Now the House? Do you think House members are watching the election/polls and starting to wonder about Nancy Pelosis as Speaker of the House in 2006?

I do.
