Newt Gingrich is gunning to become our first nerd president, and obviously a nerd president's first order of business is securing voting rights for the moon. (Maybe right after knighting George Lucas.) Gingrich wants to establish a "permanent base on the moon" by the end of his first term, and once it has 13,000 people he'd like to make it a state. He'll probably even volunteer to help get the population numbers up by impregnating hot moon babes.
