Laughing Out Loud
Word is out that Bush has another fox appointee to guard the henhouse. Susan Dudley has been appointed as regulatory czar for the Bush administration. She currently works for an outfit (that, kudos, just received an $80,000 "grant" from Exxon Mobil!) which argued that "historical evidence suggests" global warming "is likely to be beneficial, occurring at night, in the winter, and at the poles."
She also wanted to make car air bags "optional."
Apparently she is personally responsible for the statement that there "is a wide range of uncertainty in the science surrounding the health effects of arsenic in U.S. drinking water supplies."
Hey, arsenic, global warming, and steering wheel impact might actually be good for you. Let's face it, the jury is still out.
Other things that are good for you, according to the Bush administration:
delay (both Tom and time)
occupied Iraq (but hey, we're painting the schools there.)
marriage, if you are a man and a woman, as often as you like; same-sex, never.
Let no one say that this administration is putting the interests of big business ahead of the interests of the American People. That may be true, but don't let anyone say it.
