At some point even conservatives are going to have to start jumping the Bush ship. I mean, how do you explain this?

President Bush will announce plans next week to establish a permanent human settlement on the moon and to set a goal of eventually sending Americans to Mars, administration sources said last night.

According to NPR, he also plans a manned trip to Mars. The pricetag for these adventures? $1 trillon. This won't benefit big business, of course, because it will never happen--not while we continue to bleed money and cut taxes. But it does make the mind do a funny little jig trying to figure out how it could possibly translate into anything but chortles.
