Stewart: As you know, our country, America, is having a robust discussion right now about energy -- we're addicted oil, black gold, Texas tea, dinosaur love juice. Basically there's two schools of thought. Some people think offshore drilling is the answer...

McCain (Aug. 6): We have to drill here, and we have to drill now, and we have to drill immediately.

Stewart: Other people are against drilling. Think it's just a band-aid....

McCain (May 28): It will only postpone or temporarily relieve our dependency on fossil fuels.

Stewart: Boy, I'd like to be fly n the wall when those two run into each other.
