    And then there were the killer robots saved by “Cash to Clunkers”. It was a losing preposition.

    “Cash for Clunkers” worked. Increased the book value of my bucket of bolts.

    No brain. Pretty smile. Sure looks like today’s Republican to me.

    Maybe he should give up politics and start working on his bucket list…

    I wonder if Rickard is going to do a “Magnetar” gag… (for those who don’t know, “Magnetar” is the name of a collapsing neutron star that gives out a huge burst of magnetic energy as it dies, and also the name of an investment-banking firm that made tons of money by in effect constructing terrible investments and then betting they’d fail).

    If you’re unfamiliar with the “Mangetar” investment firm, it’s all explained (in the form of a Broadway show tune) here:

    A clear example of failed Buckynomics. Next he’ll bail out FannieMars and FreddieMars for financing igloos on Mars.

    Scarily accurate. Submachine: you need to realize that it was the conservative republican insistence on removing government regulation of the financial markets that caused the banks to get “too big to fail” and also insured that they would fail due to their unbridled greed.

    The guy screaming “IIIIEEEE!” was actually trying to pronounce, in the time he had left, the name of the world-killing machine: “AIG!”

    PS: Bucket. Bailout. Cute pun.

    Then again, most of the people who used to live on that planet can’t vote against him.

    “IIIIEEEE!” = Ewoks, obviously.
