Former Congressmen to Be Present at "Congressional-Style" Hearings on the Possible Existance of Extraterrestrials Among Us

Why are former Congressmen present? Who cares what they think? We hardly cared about them when they were empowered to screw up our lives; we certainly don't care now.

And why "Congressional-style"? What the hell does that mean?

Well, what it means is that someone is attempting to invest a silly media event with the signifiers of the Official and the Important to get some press.

Oh, and also, because they're going to film it for a documentary.

And those Congresspeople aren't just showing up out patriotic duty to protect us from alien invaders:

According to the Detroit News, the organization is paying Kilpatrick $20,000 plus expenses for her participation, although the former congresswoman said she has always been interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

The organization paying for this is a group that lobbies for extraterrestrial alien research.

Honestly we're all idiots. You, me, everyone here, should just move to Washington DC and open up a lobbying shop for whatever and I do mean "whatever." All you seem to need is a Post Office Box and you can get the fundraising dollars rolling in.

I've got nothing against listening for ETs, by the way. And of course UFOs are quite real-- in the sense that people really do see strange lights in the sky that no one can quite account for.

But the stunt premise of this gathering suggests they're not going to feature SETI guys talking about their antennas, but about close encounters of the anal kind. And seriously, if they've been buzzing us since the 40s and 50s, why the heck hasn't anyone sent a radio message yet?

Who the heck just starts buzzing a planet before broadcasting a reassuring "Heyyyyy buddy, just swingin' by for a minute, don't freak out..."?
