Extreme Infants! Rocket Fuel In Baby Formula! (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As time passes, the full extent of the damage that the Bush administration inflicted on the country and the world is becoming more and more clear. You may recall that last September, it was reported that George Bush's Environmental Protection Agency would not regulate the amount of rocket fuel in our nation's drinking water. As a result, sites in 35 states had dangerously high levels of the chemical perchlorate in their drinking water.

I actually wrote a post about it here, including a cartoon about a new "Extreme Bush Energy Drink" called Rocket Water. For those of you who haven't seen it, take a look.

Now you'd think, rocket fuel in your drinking water... that's pretty bad, right? But as I said earlier, the full extent of Bush's damage has not yet entirely come to light. I say this because, in case you haven't heard, in addition to rocket fuel in our drinking water, it has now been reported that there is rocket fuel in baby formula.

That's right. Baby formula.

So without further ado, please enjoy my sequel to Rocket Water... Rocket Formula!

Not to get all heavy handed here, because really, what's funnier than babies eating rocket fuel? But, if rocket fuel in baby food isn't enough to push through meaningful environmental legislation, what on earth is?

Also, feel free to follow me on Twitter if you're someone who does that sort of thing.
