Photo of the Day

Last week, enviro-zealots protested in front of the White House. The New York Post snapped this photo:


Q'orianka Kilcher, known for her role as Pocahontas in the film "The New World", protests at the White House in Washington.

As Powerline's John Hinderaker observes:
The thing about this photo is that the dumbest element isn't the misspelling. It is the silly idea that "corporate greed" is "destroying the planet." Corporations aren't greedy. They have a legal duty to try to make money for their shareholders, and they do so in a wide variety of legal ways. I don't know how, specifically, this particular dim bulb thinks "corporations," which is to say all of us, are destroying the planet, but I suppose it involves drilling for petroleum so we can drive cars rather than riding in horse-drawn buggies, or mining coal so that when we flip a switch in our home or office, a light will go on.
Interestingly, the actress just had charges dropped after chaining herself to the White House gates last year, and supposedly was banned from the area.
