We’re winning in Iraq and Ethanol is the answer to our Energy and Environmental woes! Turns out Bush’s commitment to fuel produced from corn was as well researched as his war strategy.

Ozone is a key ingredient in smog and can harm lungs even if inhaled at low levels. A spokesperson for the White House Council on Environmental Quality (didn’t know there was such a thing) said she had not reviewed the study, but reiterated the administration’s commitment to ethanol.
