Should the filibuster fail

Mike Hendrix on the next contestant on The Court Is (Far) Right:

If Alito is confirmed, we can surely expect to see the end of human freedom and the advent of gulags and re-education camps; all wages, salaries, and other income will be seized for use in the Rethugnicans' Kill The Poor program, and all private property will be legally turned over to Exxon immediately. There will be automatic weapons in every American living room. We will all be forced to wear ugly, rumpled grey tunics as we're marched off to the Reagan Memorial National Extermination Centers, and our children will be forced to sing Jesus Loves Me This I Know as they cook our intestines over fires stoked by the torn remnants of our cancer-riddled flesh.

This, of course, is unspeakable. Grey tunics? By Gandalf's snowy pubes, the International Criminal Court shall hear of this!

Addendum, 2 November, 8:10 pm: Lynn doesn't think this is all that funny.

Well, you know, he's only one man: he can't do everything.

Besides, he reeks of penis.

The real error in this piece is Exxon... It should be Haliburton!
