John McCain is working furiously to cement his legacy as the Worst. Candidate. Ever.
He's now saying that his plans to drill erect oil derricks off America's beaches will provide a psychological benefit for American consumers who won't be saving any money from this plan:
I don't see an immediate relief, but I do see that exploitation of existing reserves that may exist — and in view of many experts that do exist off our coasts — is also a way that we need to provide relief. Even though it may take some years, the fact that we are exploiting those reserves would have psychological impact that I think is beneficial.
