Since the Senate passed their portion of the new bill yesterday evening to extend "Cash For Clunkers," we have received a slough of absurd stories and press releases from a variety of sources that are predicting everything short of the Planet Earth erupting in a Krypton-like explosion. There’s idiotic analysis from Edmunds.com, fear mongering from the “National Inflation Association” (who knew it even existed), and concern for poverty-stricken golfers from powerful well-heeled old duffers.

Frankly, the only thing that really bothers me about the Cash For Clunkers program is that Nancy Pelosi supports it.

But just to be on the safe side, and to cover my own ass, I want to be the first on record to say that "Cash For Clunkers could lead to a pandemic of sexually transmitted diseases, biblical-style plagues and interplanetary intervention from either the Vulcans, Klingons, or Romulans" (I think were safe from the Borg because they would be really happy to see us destroy ourselves).

For more fun commentary be sure to read Edmunds.com's Comments on Cash For Clunkers Extension are "Off the Mark"
