    Default Obama's Dog Czar? **UPDATE**!!! Please read!

    UPDATE July 22, 2009: WASHINGTON (Fox News) -- President Obama's nominee for
    "regulatory czar" has hit a new snag in his Senate confirmation process -- a
    "hold" by Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who's says he's not convinced that Harvard
    professor Cass Sunstein won't push a radical animal rights agenda, including
    new restrictions on agriculture and even hunting.

    Senators are permitted "holds" to prevent a vote on a nominee from coming to
    the floor. They are often secretive and for very specific reasons.

    "Sen. Cornyn finds numerous aspects of Mr. Sunstein's record troubling,
    specifically the fact that he wants to establish legal 'rights' for
    livestock, wildlife and pets, which would enable animals to file lawsuits in
    American courts," the Republican's spokesman, Kevin McLaughlin, said in a
    statement to FOXNews.com.

    I wrote Mr. Cornyn and letter of THANKS! and contact our own here in Washington State! Please join me in doing the same.....
    Have a great day,
    Tina

    You are getting all the RTF attorneys very excited over this one.

    I can hear it now. "Yes, I represented Mr Porky Pig in a suit against the Walt Disney Company and Jimmy Dean Sausage Company". We lost the suit so I couldn't collect any dough but, I did have a really big BBQ for the neighborhood.
