A New Conservative Powerbase?

Angry in the Great White North and Dust my Broom both posted yesterday about a "study" by enviromental scientists in which they claim "megafauna" (ie. lions, cheetahs, elephants and camels) should be re-introduced into north america.

They call it "Pleistocene re-wilding", and claim all these animals were here during the "Pleistocene era" (between 1.8 million to about 10,000 years ago) so it is just returning them to their natural habitat.

Now, I'm no genius but isn't there a reason things go extinct? These scientist claim natural selection is natures way of evolving life, so why now do they want to reverse it? Isn't extinction fuelled by evolution (or natural selection?)

Well, I think it's alright to go ahead with this plan as long as there is no "racial profiling" of what species to bring back. If they are bringing back the "pleistocene era", I want Neanderthals to be brought back as well.

Why do I want these "Neanderthal knuckledragging cavemen throwbacks" brought back? Well, just think- a whole race of conservatives! We might even win an election!
