Saw this squib posted on the National Post website and couldn’t resist repeating it here:
“A mannequin in a polar bear suit got Washington, D.C.’s bomb squad on alert. Hundreds of people were evacuated, a metro station was shutdown and a bomb defuser was called in. The display turned out to be a “homeless polar bear” that some say was placed to raise awareness about climate change.” National Post
One has to wonder what the White House rooftop sharpshooters would have done if one had been “installed” in the little park across Pennsylvania Avenue. We know what Alaska’s screwball Governor would have done if she were there. Drill it.
It’s not the first time Greenpeace have sent polar bears to the nation’s capital.
The Greenpeace activist was arrested after peacefully protesting the Bush administration’s delay in issuing a final Endangered Species Act listing for polar bears due to global warming. This would be the one Gov. Mooselini filed a lawsuit against.
The polar bear activist floated around in a rowboat in front of the Department of the Interior for a while before police came and took him away.
