What's the prob?

Yeah, I think I'd lead with this argument:

NO OIL FOR WAR? [Michael Graham]
Jeff Greenfield of CNN says the most disturbing revelation on "60 Minutes" last night was Bob Woodward's claim that the Saudis plan to flood the international market with oil to bring down gas prices in time for the American election. To which I say "Great!" Why shouldn't the Saudis help out the president who's bravely led a coalition against an enemy on their own border, an enemy who has repeatedly threatened to invade Saudi Arabia?

If the Democrats want to argue that having President Bush in office means oil-rich nations will try to help out the American economy, go right ahead. If these nations were driving gas prices up in order to punish Bush, you can bet Teresa Heinz Kerry's dead husband's last dollar that the Democrats would be holding Bush responsible.

Instead, they’re helping a brother out. What's the prob?

The prob, of course, is that conspiring with a foreign government to rig oil prices to get yourself re-elected is, ah, frowned-upon. Apparently the right has been so corrupt for so long, the word doesn't even have any meaning for them.
