Nuclear Option, What?

Tom Burka gets me rolling:

Senate Republicans to Reject Nuclear Option in Favor of Biowarfare
Senate Republicans who feared that they would not get the 50 votes they needed to destroy the filibuster spoke of abandoning the so-called “nuclear option” in favor of biological or chemical warfare.

“We should just gas all of them,” said Sen. Rick Santorum of the Democrats, almost immediately after he had called them Nazis. Sen. Santorum later told critics that he had meant “sedating all of the Democrats with a non-toxic inhalant.”

“[Then] the only issue would be whether we had a quorum,” said Frist. “And when Dick Cheney is the Presiding Officer, well, a quorum is what we say it is.”

The conservative organization Focus on the Family, which has been instrumental in forcing Republicans to wage the filibuster battle, supports the exploration of all “extreme” options, said Dr. James Dobson. “The ends definitely justify the means,” said Dobson. “If it takes unethical and immoral acts to make this a more ethical America, then — what are we waiting for?”

    Hmmm.. that’d be even funnier if it didn’t hit so close to home. Or maybe I’m just worried about a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We all know how crazy THAT is.

    Isn’t that completely antithetical to the spirit of Christianity? I mean, I know this has come up before, but that sound byte is about as unchristian as I’ve ever heard.

    It’s satire, the quote is F-A-K-E.
