It could happen....
Courtesy of poster "bb" over at Right Thinking from the Left Coast comes a bit of satire that made me chuckle just a bit.
About that Mars landing...I expect the leftists to begin a new campaign based on this event.
"END THE ILLEGAL AND UNILATERAL OCCUPATION OF MARS! Bush lied! Where are the pictures of the Martian WMD? WHERE? NASA spent $400 million on a unilateral invasion of a foreign planet and now it's in a quagmire! NO WMD! Where are the Martians? Where are the WMD? BRING ROVER HOME NOW! NO HYDRAULIC FLUID FOR FROZEN AMMONIA!"
Bravo NASA for getting it done. Maybe next time you can show the EU how to do it as well.
