Mitt Romney Doesn't Care For Mr. Spock's Love Life
Mormon-Scientologist Mitt Romney (pictured here with The Joker) was down at Regent University earning a master's degree in Pretend World History yesterday, and he told an audience of future Monica Goodlings all about a crazy land called "France," where the ladies wear no pants and people only mate every seven years on their home planet of Vulcan.
He also criticized people who choose not to get married because they enjoy the single life.While this is not true in any way, seven-year marriage contracts are a humorous feature of neo-con sci-fi author Orson Scott Card's book The Memory of Earth, which is itself a science-fictionalization of The Book of Mormon.
"It seems that Europe leads Americans in this way of thinking," Romney told the crowd of more than 5,000. "In France, for instance, I'm told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past."
We're very close to endorsing Mitt Romney for President, because we really want to see Earth start a war with the Klingons.
