Kennedy: "The biggest threat to the shuttle Discovery is George Bush and the Republican Party!"
WASHINGTON - Thursday, Aug. 4
"There is no need to fix the shuttle Discovery," said Kennedy. "I categorically reject the deceptive and dangerous claim that there is something wrong with it! The shuttle will serve us another forty years without problem. The biggest threat to Discovery today is not the foam tiles, it's George Bush and the Republican Party."
Senator Kennedy conveyed his commitment to protecting the shuttle program from overhaul for generations of astronauts, and warned of the dangers of abandoning the Freon-free technology that produces the environmentally friendly foam insulation, which some claim to be the cause the shuttle's recurring problem.
"It is shameful that in America today - the richest and most powerful nation on earth - nearly a fifth of all children go to bed hungry because their parents are watching this fake disaster on TV," the patriarch of the Democratic Party added. "This is how this administration diverts people's attention from real issues, like redistribution of free government cheese."
Blow me up, Scotty!
Give me my free Government cheese!
