National Business Groups Join Palin's Anti-Polar Bear Lawsuit

Sounds like The Onion, I know, but Alaska's Governor Sarah Palin, now John McCain's choice to be a heartbeat away from the presidency, is suing the Bush administration over an already watered-down rule to protect Alaska's polar bears.

As we know, the Bush administration is hardly a friend of endangered species, or the environment, but when it comes to Big Oil, Palin is The One.

She wants the rule thrown out because it might get in the way of more oil and gas drilling in Alaska, and now several major business groups are joining Palin's lawsuit.

I would think that the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce would join the lawsuit, both to support McCain-Palin, and keep a consistent stand against environmental protection.
