2003UB313 or Bust!

Science has discovered somewhere to send the likes of Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Delay, Frist, Santorum, and Tancredo: the 10th planet in our solar system.

If we use one of the space shuttles, somehow ginned up for interplanetary travel, to send those boys (and girls: so long, Condi & Karen!) to good old 2003UB313, out there past Neptune and Pluto, it'll only take 634 years for them to get there. (By my calculations, which I performed on the back of the same envelope the White House Iraq Group used to plan for after the fall of Baghdad.) And if the shuttle blows up on the way up, well, that's a chance I'm willing to take.
