That dog don't hunt

Field and Stream says in an editorial that the Bush administration is no friend of hunters and fishermen.

Rod and gun in hand, and backing the Second Amendment right to own firearms, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have won the hearts of America’s sportsmen. Yet the two men have failed to protect outdoor sports on the nation’s public lands. With deep ties to the oil and gas industry, Bush and Cheney have unleashed a national energy plan that has begun to destroy hunting and fishing on millions of federal acres throughout the West, setting back effective wildlife management for decades to come.

First the farmers figured it out. Now it's the sportsmen. When Bush loses the brush-clearing ranch hands, we'll know he's toast.
