Perry Meteor Falls from the Sky
It seems the failed artificial UARS satellite wasn’t the only object to fall from the sky recently. The Perry Meteor, fueled by breathless arch-Conservative Fox News and virtually all major right-wing blogs, has seemingly crashed into the dark ocean of Republican field also-rans. Perry’s soft-on-immigrant track record has enraged many on the far right and damaged his credibility with the lunatic fringe. So in reality, two artificial objects have come down to Earth.
The first, a monument to Science and Technology realized through hundreds of centuries of accumulated scientific knowledge and progress, and the second, a twisted smiling mannequin dedicated to corporate greed and cynical worship of imaginary sky gods. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which satellite fell hardest and left the most pieces floating in the abyss.
