    Ironically, they did it to honor the Pres. et al.
    I wonder if the beetles are Republican.

    :rofl:If they aren't then I hope they aren't offended!:rofl:

    An entomologist is someone who studies bugs right? :bugeye:

    Why would you want to honour the President by naming a bug after him? I wonder what he thinks about it. :rolleyes:

    Gary Larson, author of the Far Side, had a bug named after him. I read it in one of his books

    Bush doesn't even deserve to be named after a bug. :grumpy:
