New Beetles Named after Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld

Humorous, but apparently true science headline.

Physorg says:
"Two former Cornell University entomologists who recently had the job of naming 65 new species of slime-mold beetles named three species that are new to science in the genus Agathidium for members of the U.S. administration. They are A. bushi, A. cheneyi and A. rumsfeldi."
Hmmm, insects that live in slime named for our President and his appointees. Is there some hidden message here ;-\
