Kelly Ramsey passed on this gem from Warren Ellis' "Bad Signal" mailing list, causing me to resubscribe to the list. Here it is:
It occurred to me today that Mormon politician Mitt Romney’s
candidacy is, in part, an experiment to see if America can
handle the idea of a figure of authority who also believes himself
to be wearing magic underpants.
If that's so, then I think you guys are twelve years away from a
Scientologist running for President.
And I think you know which Scientologist I mean.
