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.
