Now that Republicans have successfully installed Scott Pruitt as the head of the EPA, no Republican—politician or voter—must ever again claim that they give a shit about the environment, give a shit about mass extinctions, give a shit about their children, or give a shit about their grandchildren. Putting Scott Pruitt in charge of the EPA is the equivalent of putting Hannibal Lecter in charge of USDA Meat Inspection. . . . Mmmm. Sausages, anyone?
