Energy problem solved (Whew!)

Now I was aware that our government was very secretive and all, but I really had no idea that some mad-scientist types working in some hidden White House laboratories had managed to create cold-fusion while also coming up with a way to produce instance hydrogen through the force of prayer. But if our great President suggests this, I'm sure it's so. The man surely wouldn't be telling a lie:

"Our nation is on the threshold of new energy technology that I think will startle the American people," Bush said. "We're on the edge of some amazing breakthroughs -- breakthroughs all aimed at enhancing our national security and our economic security and the quality of life of the folks who live here in the United States."

Great news, eh? I guess we can just use all the hydrocarbons we want. (Time to buy that new Hummer and stop driving around like a girly man!) When things get real bad, the White House scientists will wheel out their new inventions for the rest of us to see. I can't wait to see the shock and awe on the faces of all those uppity experts and professor types who keep telling us that no technical breakthroughs are around the corner.
