Republican environmentalism

James Watt, secretary of the Interior under Ronald Reagan, whose first act as secretary was to move the buffalo on the department letterhead from the left side of the page to the right, at the cost of god knows how many trees, took a rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. He had himself helicoptered out on the second day because "there was nothing to see". George W Bush wants to carry on in the tradition of the over-worshipped Reagan. Drilling in Alaska to feed SUV's in Arizona, rescinding environmental orders made by Clinton, freeing up his corporate buddies to trash our country. Gore may not be as environmentally correct as Nader, but Bush will do his best to turn this whole country into a superfund site.
