“Drill baby drill by itself is not an energy policy.”"Drill baby drill"? That phrase was repeated over and over again by Gov. Palin and her audience at each and every political rally that she attended.
-Gov. Tim Pawlenty,
RGA Conference, 11/12/08
Now, I may be looking a bit too much into this, but Gov. Pawlenty, who has 2012 aspirations himself, may just be making the first veiled attack of the next Presidential primary season.
If so, now is not the time or the place for mocking or attacking fellow Republicans in order to lessen their legitimacy or build up your own.
Remember who the enemy is. Always.
