Linky.

And here's a screen shot in case they change it.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Um...the very next paragraph reads:
"The only way we can turn our nation around and get America on a sustainable path to economic growth and prosperity is to expand our GOP majority in the U.S. House, recapture the U.S. Senate and elect a Republican president in 2012."

The top image is pretty good, though. [Wink] It's further proof that *people don't proof things.*

The top image is still there, webmaster is probably on vacation with his/her email box full of warning to change the image.

That or the image is meant to instil fear in the right, so they donate more money.

Or could it be that, since the successful Obama campaign, 'Change' is a dirty word with the Republicans?

It's not a typo, it's intentional. Watch the video -- the implication is "This is what would happen if Obama were given a second term", thus compelling voters to vote Republican in 2012 and make him a one-term President. Kinda like the famous Lyndon Johnson "Daisy" ad in 1964 -- this is what will happen if you elect Goldwater.

Edit: ...or maybe this is the reason. [Wink]
