Trading Atlas for Lego

Rand Simberg has this well-reasoned rebuttal of astronaut Tom Jone's criticism of the new direction the Obama administration is taking with NASA. I thought the most telling part of the Augustine commission's report was this: As Jeff Greason of the Augustine Panel said (and co-panelist Sally Ride agreed), if Santa Claus were to deliver the system to them fully developed, they'd have to cancel it because they didn't have the money to operate it.

And yes, much as it amazes even me, it would appear I agree with a policy decision the Obama administration has made.

Oh stop it. Acting like you're having a heart attack is so Sanford and Son.

It's pretty sad that we expect people to be more shocked by the fact that neo-cons have the intellectual consistency to support Obama as long as he continues the same policies we supported under Bush, than they would be if we instantly decided that all the policies we approved of when there was a Republican president are now evil that there is a Democrat in office.

It's as if hypocrisy was not only being projected by the left wing, but actually enshrined as an expected behavior by the general public.
