In a move that is kind of amusing when it’s not completely stupid… the U.S. Air Force is lobbying the Bush administration for the development of “space weapons.” Why do we need space weapons? Republican blog readers, please let me know. I have no idea why.
And, won’t this begin an arms race in space? You can’t help but feel like some of this hitting right now is just part of the Star Wars mania sweeping the nation. And, if Bush sees Episode III this weekend, he’ll likely sign off on whatever directive necessary to protect American people from the droid and clone armies.
