The fallout from the Nork Nuke tests continues to travel across the globe in the upper atmosphere, surely bringing with it widespread death via low-dose radiation to everyone in its path.
However, while he can’t help you with your radiation-related medical affliction, Sharpy has pegged exactly what will happen politically as a result of this historical event.
At the same time, Democrats will point to Bush as failing to stop them failing to point out it was their president who gave them the technology.
Both sides will argue ad nauseam about how it’s the other’s fault. Nothing will get done.
Bush & Co. will mouth a few words that won’t amount to a hill of beans. The UN will hold a summit, write a letter, and adjourn for drinks. There will be hearings, investigations, yadda yadda yadda from our congresscritters keenly intent on making it look like they actually do something. No one will see through their smoke screen.
The DNC will focus on how insecure W makes the world and, although they have no plans to combat terror, will ask for you to put them in charge this November. The Republicans will insist we’re safer now than before and that we should keep them in power. The Green party will insist hugs, understanding, and conversion to Hybrids will protect us. The Libertarians will smoke pot and wonder why everyone else is so harsh.
Eager to find out how it all ends? Read the rest. It ain’t pretty.
