    Just another sign that bushco is in the hands of the energy companies and could care less about clean water.

    I wonder what would happen if the same were to happen near his "ranch" in Texas?

    And this is why conservatives in the West are losing the sports-person vote. People who like to fish and hunt don't want to do so in polluted areas. Montana is a prime example of this defection.

    In some parts of Montana, the sale of hunting and fishing rights brings in more money to landowners than farming does. Unfortunately, the energy lobby is huge and SE Montana especially, is a wasteland due to coal mining.

    Hey, if the Democrats can peel off just enough hunters and fishers to offset any GOP gains among Hispanics (which the GOP seems determined to throw away with the immigration debate, but I digress) then that can stop them from losing more voters to the GOP.
