Slime-Mold Beetle Named After President George W. Bush

Cornell news reports that a new species of slime-mold beetle has named been after President George W. Bush. The beetle's scientific name is now Agathidium bushi. Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney have slime-mold beetles named after them too. Rumsfeld's beetle is the Agathidium rumsfeldi and Cheney's is the Agathidium cheneyi. The two entomologists who named the beetles said the names were an honor and that it "didn't have anything to do with physical features." We are eagerly awaiting comments from Bush, Rumsfeld or Cheney about this new honor bestowed upon them.
