Bush Makes an Interesting Pick

Bush does so many stupid and awful things that every now and then I wonder if I could, in fact, be suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome - the made-up malady that some right-wingers use to dismiss those of us on the left who dare to criticize their "decider". When months go by and the only thing he does that doesn't ruin lives is cutting brush, you begin to wonder.

But today, I learned that his nominee for Treasury Secretary may actually be a thinking, rational person. He is a former Board President of the Nature Conservancy, supports the Kyoto Protocol on both environmental and economic grounds. He states:
The Kyoto Protocol is a key first step to help slow the onslaught of global warming and benefit conservation efforts…Until the United States passes its own limits on global warming emissions, innovative companies based here will lose out on opportunities to sell reduced emission credits to companies complying with the Kyoto Protocol overseas. Additionally, without enacting our own emission limits, U.S. companies will lose ground to their competitors in Europe, Canada, Japan, and other countries participating in the Protocol who are developing clean technologies.
If Bush is able to defend this nominee against the right-wing nutcases who will crawl out of the woodwork to attack him, I'll admit that Bush has done something right.

I was reading too fast when I saw this headline in my RSS reader and I read "Bush Makes an Interesting Prick."

Your headline works too. :-)
