So last night in the debate John McCain mentioned this despicable project Barack Obama supported, Chicago-style, by throwing 3 million of taxpayers’ dollars at some overhead projector in a planetarium. It was made of pork! Which is just weird, since Muslims aren’t supposed to like pigs, or celestial navigation.
So here it is, your Bacon Projector of Doom:
The Adler Planetarium — owners of the filthy overhead sky-pig robot — released a statement this morning basically saying John McCain was full of shit in six different ways, that yes Obama had voted for federal money to replace the 40-year-old projector in their dome theater, as had pretty much every local politician they’d ever lobbied, but the money was not appropriated, so suck it, etc. (PDF here.)
