"The Mission of the Department of the Interior is to protect and provide access to our Nation's natural and cultural heritage and honor our trust responsibilities to Indian Tribes and our commitments to island communities."
To best fulfill the Mission of the Department of the Interior to be responsible stewards of our common ground, President Bush has nominated Governor of Idaho Dirk Kempthorne to be the new Secretary of the Interior. Kempthorne has in the past suggested the sale of public lands to the highest bidder to privatize the parks, forests, monuments as the best way to protect these lands. (The reason being, is that once Yellowstone is paved and covered with condos, the homeowners can keep a close eye on Old Faithful in their backyard...)
Other nominations to be forthcoming from Bush include Vlad Dracula as Director of the Center for Disease Control, General George Custer as the Director of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Mrs. O'Leary's cow as the federal Fire Marshall.
