From Eric Alterman today....new element: Bushcronium

http://mediamatters.org/altercation/index


Anybody know who deserves credit for this?
New Element on Periodic Table

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Bushcronium." Bushcronium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. The symbol for Bushcronium is "W". Bushcronium's mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons in a Bushcronium molecule, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Bushcronium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass". When catalyzed with money, Bushcronium activates Foxnewsium, an element that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since it has 1/2 as many peons but twice as many morons.

3. Bravo, research scientists!
Neutron Morons, an amazing discovery! These miniscule miracles are engineered to activate en masse at the sounds of specialized words or buzzers. There must be laboratories full of these things, given the results of the last election.

5. Any Physicists here? What happens if you add some Morans?

6. OFF-TOPIC: You know with that picture...
I always found the "GO USA" sign far funnier than him misspelling morons. Everyone can laugh at a spelling mistakes, but the equating of the "war" on "terror" and a sporting event is lost on most people. It drives at the heart of why Bushco has been able to do what he has done.
