Sounds like an Onion entry, doesn't it?  Well, it isn't.  God bless the concept of irony.

Two former Cornell scientists have decided to name 3 new species of slime-mold beetles after Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.

Yeah.  Slime-mold beetles.

Like their namesakes, you probably had to dig them out from under a rock.

Query:  Do the Asses of Evil now have to worry about DeLay coming after them to exterminate them?  Will our terror level rise?  Do we need a special law from Congress?  Who can tell?

All I know is that I'll sleep warm and cozy knowing that they have at last been publicly -- and literally -- associated with slime.

Tee hee, snark, snark, snark.
