Repubbies are like the "evil universe" Enterprise crew in "Mirror, Mirror"
from the original "Star Trek."

During that proverbial transporter malfunction between universes, the "good" members of the Enterprise were able to fake "being evil" to whatever degree they needed to, until they could get back.

1. Then how come
Uhura and James can't infiltrate and "pretend to be bad," all the while setting right our mirror universe?

Sorry. It's that kind of Friday. I'm clinging to hope--any kind of hope.

2. We need to find the Mirror Spock!!
Or, we need a latter day Deep Throat. If we find the D.T., we'll also need a couple of hungry reporters, a latter day Woodstein.

A Mirror Spock would do, though.

Who's our "Mirror Spock" -- lone surviving GOPper with a heart? -- capable of changing the "evil world?"

5. Your 666th post -- and they all have "devilishly" pointed ears,
those Repubbies, but who has the goatee?

6. "Enterprise" did a similar version of this theme

Satchi ended up as Emperess of Earth after killing Archer with poison. A very good morality play about when neocon thinking takes over.

11. The only problem with that is that I've never seen the "good" GOP...
just the "evil" one.

17. Those "good" GOPers are few and far between.
But there are a handful of them, the kind they call "cloth coat Republicans."

13. If the pugs wielded absolute power absolutely, and do anything to win,
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 05:34 PM by gulfcoastliberal
would they go back and assasinate all democratic threats against them, assuming one day such techonology was available (ie, Roswell)? Even without such technology they seem to be pretty prescient about who's a threat and who isn't. Like on Star Trek IV they go back to save humpback whales. The repukes would've circled the sun a few more time and gone back to try and kill the aliens the 1st time they communicated with the whales or kill all the whales thousands of years ago.

19. NO NO they are more like the "Evil Twin Universe" from SouthPark.
Wait I shouldn't insult SouthPark like that.
