    In related news, what progress is being made on Obama's plan to turn NASA into a Muslim Outreach organization?

    Yeah. It's only headline news, the center of Drudge Report, the top line item at CNBC, you name it.

    obviously this is an attempt by the evil capitalist media to hide the Great Achievements Of Father Xi And The Chinese People United by telling people about it

    It made me think of the movie Christmas Story when the family was at the Chinese restaurant and the wait staff sang "Deck the harrs with bows of horry, Fa ra ra ra ... "

    That's debatable. With the possible exception of a "free ride after you've already paid", she misuses the word completely, referring to things which are tragic, unfortunate or just plain bad luck.

    The title of this thread tho...definitely Ironic, in a satirical sense.

    They've already said that's one of the purposes of their landing, to prove the 69' landing was a farce.
