Republicans run from their name

Belly laugh of the day. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the hatred the GOP base has for climate science:
After 16 years of trying to marry their party's support for drilling and climate change denial with environmental protection, Republicans for Environmental Protection is dropping the word “Republican” from its name.

The group's new name, ConservAmerica, is designed to "explain the connection between conservatism and conservation" and underscore the group's ethic of stewardship.
You have to wonder which they found more embarrassing, being for Environmental Protection or just admitting they're Republicans. Thinking their new name still doesn't really capture the true essence of the new conservatism though. If they were honest, they would have just called themselves, ConAmerica.
