Just too fun to resist. How the Gingrich moon base plan fared in the Republican debate tonight. Predictable responses from his fellow candidates, largely challenging the expense it would represent. Not so predictable, Newt's invocation of Chinese competition on the moon front.
Even as he spoke at the CNN debate, Gingrich's three rivals for the nomination seemed to be struggling not to burst into laughter. Ron Paul, when asked to weigh in on the question, dismissed the notion of colonizing the moon, quipping: "We should send some politicians to the moon."To be continued, hopefully.
