When asked about W.’s refusal to sign the Kyoto accord Condi Rice had this gem to offer, “the president of the United States was not elected to sign treaties that are not in America’s interest.”
I’d argue that preventing the human-induced degradation of our environment into one that is incapable of supporting human life (even Americans fall into this category) is absolutely in this nation’s interest. But hey, I’m just in the majority on this one, and not one of W.’s yes-men who love their jobs so much they are willing to disavow their responsibility to uphold the will of the citizens.
