pretty smart for a bunch of dummies

From the March 21 issue of U.S. News:

Democratic senators and aides have been told not to refer to Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by the acronym ANWR during the upcoming fight over oil drilling there. Instead, the leadership wants it called the "Arctic refuge." The reason, said a key aide: "ANWR sounds cold. 'Arctic refuge' conjures up pretty scenes and animals."

Come on, do the ladies and gents of the beltway really think that little of the American public? Can we really be that stupid?

No wait, don't answer that. anyway, I almost hit a deer tonight. The first close call of 2005 and one more sign of spring!
