They really said that

Excerpts from the June 18 editorial in the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

• “[S]ince when are the interests of ‘the big oil companies’ at odds with those of the millions of Americans who own shares of their stocks through our 401(k) plans?”

• And this, regarding Sen. John McCain’s support of lifting the federal ban on offshore oil drilling: “Not that Sen. McCain offers oil as the sole solution. The Republican would also like to see more nuclear power plants built. Democrat Obama opposes those, too, of course, insisting we can get our electric bills and gasoline prices down by concentrating on windmills and solar power, with the difference apparently being made up by requiring domestic energy companies to buy fixed percentages of their power from magic fairies and elves in hollow trees.”
