Supposedly “scientific” calculations from elitist, fancy-pants researchers at Lehigh University released today estimate it will take another 833,315 years to produce enough iron ore and steel at current production levels to build the apocalyptic space weapon proposed by President Gingrich. The research team furthermore projects total cost of the “Callista” Death Star to be more than $852 quadrillion (roughly 13,000 times the world’s present GDP).
Republicans in Congress characterized the study’s findings as unpatriotic, counter to the relentless optimism provisions of the Exceptional Planetary Existence of Americans Act of 2015, and furthermore dismissed its estimates as wild exaggerations based on “excessive facts and inordinate reason.” Pentagon officials also weighed in on the controversy, insisting that continued development of the colossal 140km space weapon is absolutely vital to the national security interests of the United States and its ongoing war on unspecified intergalactic terrorism.
Here’s the latest negative attack ad from the Ron Paul campaign slagging Rick Santorum for not being a “fiscal conservative”… (Seems to have been done by the same agency that created the snappy, tough-talking Ford F-150 truck ads.)
I suppose one could quibble about specifics of the dubious allegations made if there was a point to such an endevour, but perhaps a more intriguing question for Ron Paul supporters is why his campaign NEVER attacks Mitt Romney… Rather curious, that.
Maybe, as some have speculated, Ron Paul’s entire campaign is nothing but an enormously expensive venture to become the “last” Chairman of the Federal Reserve under a Romney administration. Seems like a highly improbable outcome of his inevitably doomed bid to be the Republican Party nominee, but hey… it’s no less detached from reality than the rest of his batshit crazy domestic policy proposals, so who knows?
Rick Mercer lays a smack-down on Vic Toews and Bill C-30, his warrantless online spying legislation.
Remember folks… you’re either with the philandering old pervert accused of shtupping his babysitter or you’re with the pedophiles and child pornographers. Sorry, but those are the only available choices on offer in Harperland.
