Charlotte Allen makes the case for Sarah Palin running for president in 2016. She's pretty much hated by the establishment. But we ran with their candidate and now see how that turned out.

Addendum: Predictably Rand Simberg has gone orgasmic.

If this is true, it’s going to make it harder for NASA to justify SLS. Or even being in the human spaceflight business at all. We’ll soon see, perhaps. December isn’t far off.

Actually, no. Rand did not quote the part of the article that suggested that the current thinking on space exploration involves heavy lift and fuel depots. We don't have any details about the venture or who is involved. So it is a little premature to predict the death of NASA as a space exploration agency.

Rand Simberg is spinning fairy tales of secret plans to scrap the heavy lift Space Launch System in favor of the latest scheme to put more money into Elon Musk's pocket, fuel depots in space supplied by "commercial" launches. If such a plan were to even be proposed it would be proof (if it was needed) that space policy under Obama is driven by politics and graft. But it would not fly otherwise because (a) it's unworkable and much more expensive and risky than some people pretend and (b) Congress will never go for it.
