When Nuts Run The Asylum

Fifteen hunting and conservation organizations, including the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and the National Wild Turkey Federation, last week denounced President Obama's nomination of an avowed anti-hunter to a high-level administration position.

According to Alan Clemons, writing for ESPNOutdoors.com, the nomination of longtime attorney and law professor Cass Sunstein to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs :has drawn harsh scorn and a concerted grassroots effort to block the appointment through calls and emails to Senate leaders.:

The OIRA has authority over federal regulations, including those of the Department of the Interior and its U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Department of Agriculture.

Why should you be alarmed: Sunstein has stated that animals should be allowed to sue humans in court and hunting should be banned completely if its only purpose is for sport.
