Barry Soetto, I mean Barry "Barack" Oblahblah has charged Charles Bolden, NASA's administrator, with three tasks. The first task makes sense. To help re-inspire children to want to excel at math and science. I can live with that. That is honorable and decidedly Nasa-like. Get those kids thinking. Way to go, Barry. I'm feeling it, dude.
The second task makes me scratch my head a little bit, but I can almost get there. Not quite, but almost. Barry asked Mr Bolden to expand our international relationships. OK. We're doing joint stuff with other countries with the space station. We want to make sure we keep talking to them despite us mothballing the space shuttle. They aren't mad. We're cool.
Now, the third task strikes me as downright absurd. I ain't jiggy with it and I don't see myself getting any too jigged at any point because the third directive is ludicrous. Barrack Barry Hussein Soetto Obama actually instructed Charles Bolden, the head egghead at Nasa, "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and math and engineering," Bolden said in an interview.
Yuh huh. Right. The Muslims that force their women to wear burkas? The Muslims who stone to death women who have sex before marriage? The Muslims that are fighting to preserve their third world existence in Afghanistan? Maybe the Muslims strapping bombs to their chests and walking into crowded shopping areas and blowing themselves to smithereens. Are these the ones you are talking about, Barry? These highly evolved, non-aborted, highly scientific, donkey riding dirt dwellers? Their contributions to math and science and engineering? OK, Barry. Have NASA come up with that for you.
What a putz.
