Oh, and I'm pretty sure all of those people could pronounce "nuclear" correctly.
But my favorite bit comes from FOH (Friend of Hell) Dr. Gori, who quotes the Prez:
"A hopeful society has institutions of science and medicine that do not cut ethical corners, and that recognize the matchless value of every life. Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research: human cloning in all its forms, creating or implanting embryos for experiments, creating human-animal hybrids..." [emphasis and incredulous eye-rolling mine]
Well, damn. There goes the mermaid vote.
