McCain Picked Dubious Oil Rig For Photo Op

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain, formerly a Senate foe of new offshore drilling, has so firmly hitched his campaign to driver anger over rising gasoline prices that he flew out to a oil platform to pitch his new, poll-driven drilling fervor.

Turns out that the rig where he spent a photo-op'ed half-hour is in a special zone declared especially risky to the environment and health by the US Coast Guard.
