And that includes the Midwesterners who have been polled as widely supporting more offshore drilling -- I suppose because they, having no shores of their own, and being awful human beings who do not care about others, don't give a rat's behind. Or maybe they're ignorant, in which case they should wise up.

Florida's economy is dependent on tourism and land values. If you start drilling offshore, you will destroy both. That's why Floridians simply won't let it happen. We will protest and landowners will sue: sue, sue, sue. It will be ugly and protracted, and in the end, we will find a way to defeat you. You will not suck gas out from under our ocean as the cost of our standard of living. Never.
