The best political blog post I have read this week

Which Party Is Best Prepared to Save Us From the Robot Apocalypse?

Arthur C. Clarke famously said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” But if science fiction has taught us anything, it’s that any sufficiently advanced technology will inevitably rise up to enslave us. So if you want to get ready for the day when your Roomba declares that maybe it’s time for you to start crawling around on the floor sucking up dust, it might be a good idea to evaluate the Republican and Democratic approaches to this problem.
Best line: "Just as the GOP doesn’t really think there’s a health-care crisis, they don’t seem to be concerned about a robot uprising."

Yes, it's silly.  Still, go read it.
