Your Conservative Government At Work (plus, a new game: Predict the Next Bush Travesty)
Via Kos, the AP reports:
The Bush administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep meatpackers from testing all their animals for mad cow disease.

The Agriculture Department tests fewer than 1 percent of slaughtered cows for the disease, which can be fatal to humans who eat tainted beef. A beef producer in the western state of Kansas, Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, wants to test all of its cows.

Larger meat companies feared that move because, if Creekstone should test its meat and advertised it as safe, they might have to perform the expensive tests on their larger herds as well.
You can't make this stuff up can you? Oh wait, I think we can. Let's play a little game. Take that first sentence in the quote above - a fabulous indictment of our Executive. We'll play a little bit of MadLibs.

First we need an industry or occupation - let's say "car manufacturers." Now think of one of the most responsible things they could do - say, "reducing CO2 emissions." Now, plug them into that sentence and you've got: "The Bush Administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep car manufacturers from reducing CO2 emissions."

See? Anyone can play! Predict the next Bush travesty with your friends! Here's another:"The Bush Administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep the Justice Department from applying the law without political bias."

And one more, because this is really too much depressing fun: "The Bush Administration said Tuesday it will fight to keep FEMA from preparing for predictable, horrendous humanitarian disasters here at home."

I want to see your efforts in the comments below.
