Drilling for Oil

This part of Palin's speech caught my eye yesterday when the McCain campaign released some excerpts of her speech to the media This quote is directly from the transcript, including the audience's laughing response:

Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems, as if we didn't know that already. (Laughter.) But the fact -- the fact that drilling, though, won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.
Ok, so you're admitting drilling won't solve the crisis, but hell, go ahead and do it anyway?! What for? So you can destroy even more of the environment? And in doing so provide no actual VIABLE solution?! What the hell kind of a suggestion IS that?
