Steven Chu, the retiring Secretary of Energy, is blaming the power outage at the Superbowl on the Republicans. Steven Chu had arranged to have the Superbowl completely powered by solar panels as a final act of demonstrating the reliability and feasibility of solar power. To accomplish it, he had asked the Food Stamp President to request Congress to change the day/night ratio to 80% daylight versus 20% night to support the increased light requirements. The Republicans laughed off the request and the resultant unexpected darkness rendered the solar panels inoperable. The battery and generator backups proved to be up to Dept of Energy standards which are normally set as half-a$$ed. Steven was outraged and railed at the Republicans for ruining his farewell technological demonstration. Steven whined that Mrs. Slick Willy Clinton had her successes in Libya and Egypt before she left office, but he was deprived of this final flourish by those evil Tea Party Republicans. Senator Cruz suggested that Stevie put on his big boy pants, suck it up and crawl away to his bought and paid for job running a green energy company.
Good job on including the “unexpected” darkness! :)
I’m trying to stay cynical but it’s damned hard to keep up.
...don’t we usually call it ‘night’?
We definitely need alternative energy to reduce the percentage of CO2 in the earths atmosphere because it is already at 0.04% which you can call zero point zero, and if we wait any longer it could get to zero point zero, and even as high as zero point zero. Al Gore is only worth $200 million now despite never holding a job that paid more than $220k a year, and how can one live on that?
Actually... it’s Bush’s fault.
Yes, we usually call it “night”, but “unexpected darkness” (attributable to the Republicans, no less) sounds so much more sinister.
I am not so sure about the “republicans”, but, certainly Bush is at fault.
This has GOT to be satire. But if I am questioning it, it darn well might be true. LOL
A G-d-made disaster.
Come now it was the San Francisco Forty Niners fault that the lights went out in only half the Mercedes Benz Superdome. This was the faggot bowl.
San Fran was a losing and needed a diversion and yet lost anyway. Unless it was the “Light Brigade” having its last laugh against the Yankee teams playing in the South.
What did they know about it, and when did they know it was dark? Seriesly
I’m seeing things on FB where they are blaming the non-union electricians and right to work laws.
BTW, it's still nothing is Obama's fault, right?
If I said the only chink in the armor is Chu himself, would the moderators ban me? I hope not.
Only in the “Chocolat City”.
