Noted technophile and Moon colonization advocate Newt Gingrich has some news: He’s reviewing the Apple Watch for Mashable, which is a pretty sweet gig for an emerging gadget blogger. No word on when Ron Paul’s Oculus Rift review is going live.
"Here at Gingrich Productions, we've spent weeks figuring out," ponders Newt Gingrich. "What do you call this?" It's a phone, Newt. "But think about it. If it's taking pictures, it's not a cellphone. If you can get Wikipedia or go to Google, that's not a cellphone." Sigh.
Guy-who-won't-win Rick Santorum has a new weapon in his arsenal against Space Admiral Newt Gingrich: a radio attack ad damning Newt's moon base as financially irresponsible. The moon base is this election's pivotal issue—is the dream dead?
Neil DeGrasse Tyson—one of my favorite space people—was interviewed by MSNBC's Martin Bashir about Newt Gingrich's moon base plan by 2020. The short version: Newt got it wrong. The long version: watch the video.
