U.S.S. Reagan: "We're from the government and we're here to help."

Tugboats and an aircraft carrier are headed out to sea to tow in a cruise ship that lost power off California after an engine room fire. The crew of the Mexico-bound Carnival Splendor battled the fire for three hours which left the vessel adrift, officials said.

"The ship has been operating on auxiliary generators and engineers have been unable to restore additional power to the vessel," Carnival Cruise Lines said in a news release.

The U.S. Navy was also diverting the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan from training maneuvers to help. A plane was to drop off 35 pallets of supplies on the carrier that will be delivered to the cruise liner by helicopter, the Navy said in a statement.

1. It's OK, there are Republicans on board.

Republicker motto: "All for me, none for thee"

Meanwhile, in my world...

The nine most frightening words in the English language are... "I'm from the corporation and I'm here to help."

2. Correction...
"I'm from the corporation and I'm here to help - if you can pay."
