Remember The Reagan Administration Plan to Classify Ketchup As A Vegetable? Here Is The Bush Administration Version, Regarding Endangered Species

There's just no end to the troubles this administration has caused, or the end-runs it has tried, when pandering to special interests.

It's what brought us new logging as "The Healthy Forest Restoration Act," and more air pollution under the "Clear Skies Initiative."

Surely the Bushies thought it'd be clever to get a number of salmon species in the Pacific Northwest de-listed as endangered - - at the behest of so-called "property-rights groups" - - by padding the counts with artificially-raised fish, along with truly wild fish, too.

Thank goodness there was a court to step in and say "enough."
