If you missed it, the Chi-Coms landed a rover on the moon and are driving that thing all over our turf:

Meanwhile, what’s going on at our state of the art space agency?

While no manned missions to space are planned, NASA spent $360,000 paying people to “lie around and do nothing” for a study on weightlessness in space.

The agency spent $3 million for a seminar on “how the legislative process really works” in Congress; $237,205 to study red crabs; and $390,000 to create a cartoon superhero, the “Green Ninja,” to teach children about global warming.

The character fights his archenemies “plastic man, coal man, and junky corporate man.”

Plastic Man is not amused.

Plastic Man is not amused.

This is Obama’s America.

Where NASA makes cartoons and China lands on the moon.

Awesome.
