The Aliens Check On Sarah Palin

Ah, so it wasn't Russia she could see from her front door.

In one of Kurt Vonnegut's novels (I think it's The Sirens of Titan), there's an episode where Martians do brainwashing experiments on a bunch of soldiers from planet earth. Only something goes a little wrong with the experiments, and instead of just partially brainwashing them, they accidentally wipe out the entire minds of the soldiers.

As Vonnegut tells it in the novel, at that point the only thing to do with the soldiers was housebreak them, teach them a vocabulary of 5000 words, and give them jobs in military and industrial Public Relations.

He didn't say whether any of them subsequently went into politics.
