Neologism of the Day: "Fatuosity"

From the "I kid you not" department:  NASA's primary mission, now that we don't have a manned space program anymore and no prospect of ever having one again, is to try to persuade Muslims that they're not losers.  (They're not, but that's not because they led the world in culture and learning a thousand years ago.) It's not enough to maim our nation's economy for at least a generation, The One We've Been Waiting For has now put his political appointees on the road to destroying our science and technology too. What's next, directing massive federal subsidies to Silicon Valley for enhancing the self esteem of... what's next?  What's left?  But don't worry, earnest intellectual elites, a cause will be identified.
