QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“There’s no real rationale for colonization of the Moon, so it’s hard not to be cynical and conclude this is the space-age equivalent of bread and circuses,” Will Marshall, president of the Progressive Policy Institute, a Democratic research group, said in The New York Times the other day.

Good thing JFK didn’t follow his advice.

JFK has long been an iconic image for Democrats. Bush’s space proposals allow him to triangulate off Kennedy’s resonating spirit–and present the perfect to trap for liberals and leftists who oppose them to fall into.

UPDATE: “Translation: This would be such a good idea, if only it wasn’t George W. Bush’s”.

Looks like another case of hypocrophobia.
