Bye bye, Gale. You will not be missed.
Most likely the worst Interior Secretary we have had.

www.wilderness-sportsman.com (see more stories like this at the daily news section)

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11763207 /



"

Under her watch, the Interior Department stripped protection from areas previously managed as wilderness, opened forests to increased logging, reopened Yellowstone National Park to snowmobiles and urged federal land managers to speed up drilling for gas on public land.

Norton called the work cooperative conservation, which included partnerships with landowners and developers as opposed to regulations.

She also was the administrations biggest advocate for opening part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on Alaskas North Slope to oil drilling. Attempts to get Congress to do that have so far failed. "

5. She was hunting next 2 Dick & he swung his shotgun around too quickly.
But it was OK, cause she immediately apologized and told the ER she walked into a door.

12. Wounded in the line of duty...
...ramming the ugly thing up the back channel of every oil company, clearcutter, strip miner, and mercenary operation that wanted a share of the dwindling booty.

Norton was and is the American environment's worst enemy--her truly evil nature was obscured only by the worse extremes of Chimpy's other cabinet members. Jail time is the least she deserves; she the James Watt who didn't get caught early enough. :nuke:

10. don't let the door hit you on the way out
isn't it ironic that she says she and her husband want to go spend their time in the mountains of the west that they love and by the way spent most of her time trying to destroy. Gosh, what nature lovers are they.

16. They say you end up with the face you deserve.
And hers looks as pock-marked and scarred and polluted as the American wilderness she whored out to her buddies.

Ugly is as ugly does in this case. Good riddance.

23. Except for whomever Bush nominates now
She was the worst. But I have no doubt tha Bush is capable of dragging through the muck to find someone infintely worse, if that's possible.
