Oh the irony!

Sweet, sweet irony

Bush wants to go to the moon, and the ACLU defends Rush Limbaugh. Is this a great country, or what?


George W Bush, whose travels to foreign countries as president have seldom taken him out of the airport, now wants NASA to set its sights on building a new space vehicle to establish an outpost on the moon and travel to Mars and beyond. He says there's a lot to be learned from doing this, and — who knows — incredible resources may be discovered there.

What leads Un-Curious George to take such an interest in scientific exploration and interplanetary travel? You don't suppose it could have anything to do with all those electoral votes up for grabs in states with a vested interest in the space program, states like Florida, Texas, California?

And the best part is, Bush won't have to figure out how to pay for it!

It's not hard to guess who The Shrub would like to send to the moon first! Wonder if former secretary of the treasury Paul O'Neill has a lunar visa in his passport?

Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh, whose views on drug addition — his addiction, that is — have shifted dramatically since he was discovered to be a major blackmarket customer of prescription painkillers, was supported by the ACLU who filed a friend-of-the-court brief arguing that state law enforcement officers violated Limbaugh's right to privacy when they seized his medical records as part of their investigation.

How perfect is that? The same ACLU that Rush is always ranting about turns the other cheek and comes to his aid. Now that's a real left-wing conspiracy! But I'm sure that even in the face of this principled action, it won't be long before Rush will bloviate against them again.
