Have we inhabited Mars yet? If so, can someone send up soon-to-be-presidential candidate Fred Thompson? Please.
It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle…”
Post writer John Solomon doesn’t point out in the article that scientists have determined that the cause of current warming on Mars is something entirely different from what we’re seeing on Earth.
But does he really have to?
Are Americans going to want a President that openly mocks the current scientific evidence for human-caused global warming? Probably not. While it may not be the biggest issue in the follow-up to the 2008 elections, it’s on people’s minds and they’re concerned.
Maybe if science is proven wrong and there are in fact “SUV-driving industrialists” on Mars, Thompson could jump on his campaign rocket and run for President there. And by the looks of the other news out of the Thompson campaign today, it looks like members of the Bush family would pony up for the rocket fuel.
