Obama administration: Get ready for nuke attack

“We have to get past the mental block that says it’s too terrible to think about,” W. Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said in an interview, according to the New York Times. “We have to be ready to deal with it.”

What's he talking about? Why, a major U.S. city being hit by a nuke, of course.

Along with gropedowns and naked photo scanners at U.S. airports, the Obama administration is boosting our security by not-so-subtly getting the word out about surviving a nuclear blast.

Apparently, the government's big plan to save us all is to have us hunker down in our cars and basements, because according to new studies, that will work if happen to find ourselves near a nuke blast.

If this all sounds a little familiar, you're probably flashing back to the "duck and cover" drills of the 1950s. That's rather appropriate now that Obama's START treaty would resurrect the Cold War by returning us to a policy of Mutually Assured Destruction with Russia.

Ah, yes. Some days, you can just inhale all that hope and change in the air.
