Send In The Clowns

Isn't it rich? We, who couldn't be bothered to get behind the numerous investigations of obvious election-rigging, and other monkey business here in our own country getting all hot and bothered over---wait for it---overvotes in the Ukraine!!! And who more perfect to convey the full weight of our national concern than that paragon of credibility, Colin "Aluminum Tubes" Powell?

Aren't We a Pair (or A Trio, Or A Quintet--of Species?)

Meanwhile, over at the always droll Pentagon DARPA, insects and plant life are next in line to be drafted.

"Backed by the Pentagon, scientists are recruiting insects, shellfish, bacteria and even weeds to act as "bio-sentinels," which give early warning of biological and chemical attacks, detect explosives or monitor the spread of contamination."
You knew Bush was running out of widows, but who could have guessed the personnel shortage had gotten so severe?

"June Medford, a plant biologist at Colorado State University, said the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America were a wake up call for her and many other scientists who had not previously thought of researching how nature can help domestic defense."
Oh, I don't know...remember those Dolphins for Peace?

Have a good holiday.
