Bush Administration Incompetence to Expand Scope Past Atmosphere
Remember Patrick Rhode? He was the former TV reporter who leveraged a job as deputy advance guy for Bush in 2000 (deputy to the guy who makes sure there's bottled water behind the podium!) into a gig as deputy director of FEMA. Then New Orleans drowned, and Rhode called FEMA's response "probably one of the most efficient and effective responses in the country's history."
Thankfully, he's no longer with FEMA. Nope, instead he's going to strand all of our astronauts in space.
Patrick Rhode is now listed in NASA's online phonebook as a "senior advisor" to "Organization: A" (Office of the Administrator)
So look for the International Space Station to come crashing down into Detroit, killing thousands, sometime around March.
