Happy Republican Earth Day

Bush gives Earth Day the finger
Via Jesus' General, the story of how King George celebrated Earth Day: by mountain biking through wilderness areas that are sensitive breeding grounds for endangered species. The Palm Springs Desert Sun has the full story:
the Clara Burgess trail is also among those monument managers ask people to avoid part of the year to prevent disrupting endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep.

The trail is one of about 10 in the monument under a "voluntary avoidance" program. People are asked to stay off the Clara Burgess trail from Jan. 1 to June 30 during the sheep lambing season, he said.

It was uncertain Sunday night if White House organizers accompanying President Bush knew about the "voluntary avoidance" program.

Yeah, sure. Somehow the President of the United States, plus his entire entourage of Secret Service dudes, simply slipped into the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument without anybody noticing. There's probably motorcades of black limos up there all the time.

More believable is they were fully aware of the "voluntary avoidance" program, but they slapped the managers on the back, had a nice big good-ol'-boy laugh together, and then did whatever the hell they wanted to anyway.

And if that's not a Republican way to spend Earth Day, I don't know what is.
