    Wow, that sucked...

    While I applaud the general idea, the execution was just exceptionally bad on all levels...

    Whenever I see a government agency waste that amount of money, I always wonder how many people they could have fed instead.

    I'm not sure I'd describe that as an "elaborate set" per the article. Aren't the walls all green-screened?

    This is the worst parody ever. Of all time.

    As with most things the government does, the people could have made it better, cheaper and more authentic.

    Imagine what the fans could have done with the same cash . . .

    Sadly it's a step up from the social Security Administration's "Boldly Go" ads with George Takei and Patty Duke. I recently had the occasion to spend an hour or three in an SS office trying to get a replacement card. They had those spots running over and over and over on monitors around the waiting room. By the time I left, I was very close to committing an atrocity of some sort.

    We should just abolish the IRS and most of the federal government for wasting our money on crap like this.
