'Drill, Baby, Drill' Exposed

See: the Tweet of the Day, earlier today. Okay? Now, read on...

Doug Mataconis takes apart Sarah Palin's 'Drill, Baby, Drill' philosophy. And how.
The obvious implication, of course, is that if we’d just listened to the “Drill Baby Drill” crowd, we wouldn’t have to worry about dealing with an oil rig disaster far out at sea under a mile or more of water (instead we’d be dealing with one close to the shore, but I digress).

The problem is that the Queen of the “Drill Baby Drill” chant never made a distinction between deepwater and other forms of drilling:
What is he talking about? Palin:
And we will develop clean-coal technology. And we will safely drill for the billions of barrels of oil that we have underground, including off-shore.
More Palin:
And whether Joe Biden approves it or not, we will develop clean coal technology and we will safely drill for the billions of barrels of oil that are warehoused underground, including our offshore sources.
...and yet more Palin:
It also means safely tapping into our offshore sources, safely, environmentally safe.
Sooooo... she supported more and more drilling of the offshore persuasion. But now, she conveniently leaves that part out of her Facebook-posts-as-political-statements.

I don't understand how anyone can take her seriously. Honestly. Can any supporters calmly and rationally explain to me why it is that you support this woman?
