Nuclear power and the Eiffel Tower

A facile-but-funny sound bite about the economics of nuclear power compared with other energy sources:

If you wanted to secure your house against intruders, and among your choices were a $500 alarm system, a $200 shotgun, and a $3 million hologram that could be projected onto your house to make it look like it was the Eiffel Tower, would you pick “all of the above”? If you answered yes, you might consider working for John McCain.”
