Dept. of Unintended Buffoonery
Syndicated columnist (and reliable wingnut) Charles Krauthammer writes today about how we should establish manned colonies on the moon. He derides those "Luddites" of the left for wanting to resolve more Earthly problems first, and waxes poetic about how a moon colony would be akin to "endeavors we find beautiful, exciting and elevating - - opera, alpine skiing, feature films. . ." As Atrios notes, if the Krautmeister and his neocon cohorts hadn't been busy foisting the trillion dollar blunder of Iraq on us, we might actually have a few dollars to throw at his moon colony.
