A Choice Only Republicans Can Love
Senator Ken Salazar, who is reportedly President-Elect Obama's choice for Secretary of Interior, is a choice that Republicans can celebrate. As a western Rancher with a ZERO Humane Animal Scorecard from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and apparently with support from the oil and gas industry, he would have fit nicely within the current Bush Administration or that of Reagan's James Watt-led Interior Department.
As a man who supported Lieberman's bid for remaining Chair of the Homeland Security Committee and introduced Alberto Gonzalez to Congress, he has shown he will be able to represent the Republican viewpoint in Obama's Cabinet.
BLOODY HALL OF SHAME: ZERO HUMANE SCORECARDS
109th Senatorial Democrats Congressional Final Scores
Only 4 Democrats
Only four Democratic Senators have earned a zero on the HSUS Humane Scorecard, and among this ignominious count was a vote to torture and put downed animals in your food supply, and a separate vote to slaughter equines (which are flight animals) in slaughterhouses designed for short necked, docile bovines (cows). Senator Ken Salazar distinguishes himself by being among this sad group.
