[UPDATE]: That ain’t rain, Glenn.
‘…but for NASA?’
Most interesting rumor from the Hill yesterday: Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) who announced his retirement from Congress has been promised the job of NASA administrator in exchange for his vote, and Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), another retiring Democrat, has been promised an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in exchange for his vote.
(Via Transterrestrial Musings, via Instapundit.) The man does realize that this simply means that he gets to be the one holding the knife when the Democrats kill the manned space program once and for all, yes?
PS: This is not a threat.
This is a promise. And Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) doesn’t give a tinker’s dam whether you like it or not.
