Alien SUV-driving Industrialists

Now that conservatives seem to be getting serious about Fred Thompson for president, I thought I'd share some of his serious words about global warming:

Plutonic Warming

By Fred Thompson

Some people think that our planet is suffering from a fever. Now scientists are telling us that Mars is experiencing its own planetary warming: Martian warming. It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto.

NASA says the Martian South Pole’s “ice cap” has been shrinking for three summers in a row. Maybe Mars got its fever from earth. If so, I guess Jupiter’s caught the same cold, because it’s warming up too, like 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.

Silly, I know, but I wonder what all those planets, dwarf planets and moons in our SOLAR system have in common. Hmmmm. SOLAR system. Hmmmm. Solar? I wonder. Nah, I guess we shouldn’t even be talking about this. The science is absolutely decided. There’s a consensus.

Ask Galileo.

The link is to the National Review Online, it contains a link to Thompson speaking while Peggy Lee sings in the background -- a really serious look at a serious issue. He was equally serious about WMD.

I'm amazed that this punkin'-headed jackass passed the bar.

Peggy Lee.

Did he reprise the Christopher Walken's role from that locked-in-a-bomb-shelter "time warp" movie vehicle for the goofy mook in "The Scorpion King"? (Sorry, blanking on the blank-eyed dude's name.) No, not Jerry O'Connell, the other one.

Anyway, the first movie, with "Clueless" blonde girl, they mistook something for The Big H-Bomb and locked themselves underground for 25 years or so, and after the son escapes, Walken's paternal character refuses to believe that the earth still exists outside of the shelter, and still doesn't want to emerge from his 1950s cocoon.

Fred in a nutshell. Hard to believe that anyone so "tainted" by "Hollyweird" could still be such a recidivist... at least Heston has the excuse of Alzheimer's (now, anyway)...
