Just Kidding About 'Straight Talk'
by
Billy Cox

Just kidding about goading John McCain's 'Straight Talk Express'
into investigating the Phoenix Lights. That's an unfair burden
to impose on any public servant torn between constituent
obligations and getting elected.

During his presidential bid in 2003, retired Army Gen. Wesley
Clark made the mistake of going off-script and saying that he
thought humans could someday exceed the speed of light.

Between the 'General Moonbat' media smirks and late-night comic
fodder, Clark's campaign was pretty much toast after that (David
Letterman: "Today, Clark time-traveled to the Democratic
convention and found out he wasn't nominated because of stupid
time-traveling remarks.")

And you don't get a pass long after you've left office, either.

In February, 83-year-old former Canadian defense minister Paul
Hellyer advocated the declassification of American UFO data
under the assumption that harnessing alleged alien propulsion
technology could end the global economy's dependence on
polluting fossil fuels.

"If you think this is kooky, then correct yourself," retorted
Rush Limbaugh - no stranger himself to contradictory positions
- from his radio pulpit in March. "This is emblematic of the
entire global warming movement, folks. It's no more outrageous
and it's just as credible as this whole carbon offsets scam."

Global warming and UFOs =96 now there's a radioactive linkage sure
to knock environmental fence-straddlers back into their 10
miles-a-gallon Hummers.

So until they start making Brooks Brothers suits out of Kevlar,
a politician who talks about opening the books on UFOs is either
a) committing career suicide, or b) attempting to regain the
confidence of more than 70 percent of Americans (see 6/4/07).

Hmm. Come to think of it, that's almost as high a percentage as
Americans who think we should be allowed to import cheaper
prescription drugs from Canada (84 percent, 2002 Harris poll).

Congress laughed that off, too.
