04:07 pm - Warren Ellis on US politics
The ever-brilliant Warren Ellis has this to say about the US presidential campaign
bad signal
WARREN ELLIS

It occurred to me today that Mormon politician Mitt Romney’s
candidacy is, in part, an experiment to see if America can
handle the idea of a figure of authority who also believes himself
to be wearing magic underpants.

If that's so, then I think you guys are twelve years away from a
Scientologist running for President.

And I think you know which Scientologist I mean.

You're welcome.

With luck, he'll turn out to be wrong, but I'm not absolutely certain about this, and that's definitely worrisome.

Fred Thompson is also an experiment: “How about another actor?”

Is Romney the only one with magic underpants?

Well, he's the only one who openly admits to it. Who knows what people do behind closed doors, but this is part of Mitt's belief system.

I'm fairly certain I do not want to know the answer to that question.

All Presidents have magic underpants.

If you remove the top layer of wood from the White House, you'll find a layer of delicious candy.

Chief Justice Roberts has a magic unicorn that no one but Supreme Court Justices can see.

There are things about this world that we the people do not know; and the Constitutional government of the United States stands between us and that storm.

I believe this is a short-version of the script of the next "National Treasure" movie, the one which will be excessively realistic.

If Justices were naked beneath their robes, would anyone know?

I have to agree, I hope not either.

BTW, I've seen the magic underpants, they are called holy garments or g's for short. They are nice. dancemajick has his packed away in the storage shed. We plan on getting rid of them someday, but for now they sit there with his excommunication letter.
