She Turned Me Into a Newt…

Newt Gingrich made a statement yesterday that if he is elected president he will task NASA to develop a permanent base on the moon by 2020 as well as develop a manned program to Mars (as well as relying heavily on the private space industry).

Okay, so I know I preach a lot on this blog about the importance of human exploration and expansion into space, and I am thrilled that there is a leader who claims to want to make it a priority, but its Newt Freakin’ Gingrich.  Having him be the champion for your cause is like asking for a Mercedes and getting a 1984 Dodge Caravan.  Sure its a car, but its old, temperamental and unstable at high speeds.  On the bright side though it can fit all his wives.

I know I’m being a bit hypocritical, any publicity is good publicity…right?
