Rachel Maddow explains why SDI will never work


You know what? Here's the country, here's the kind of thing you put over like a cake to protect the cake from flies. Missiles don't work that way. That’s the whole idea of SDI. We'll protect ourselves by shooting missiles at other missiles. It’s never worked in a test. We spent billions on it.
There is more in this link above, enjoy. I was flabbergasted by this explanation. I had to look up Ms Maddow credentials, and this is what Wiki says:
A graduate of Castro Valley High School in Castro Valley, California, Maddow earned a degree in public policy from Stanford University in 1994.
In 2001, she earned a Doctorate in Philosophy (DPhil) in politics from Oxford University. Her thesis is titled HIV/AIDS and Health Care Reform in British and American Prisons.
This must be the reason. Or excuse, whatever. In any case, I have to remember that interpretation of missile defense, it will be the in thing for the next month or so. I bet.

You're so right. Lots of dopes get their "expertise" from celebrities.

And I forgot to mention the great thinker Bill Maher looking at the scene benevolently. Bleh...
