Who says the space program is dead.   Secretary of State, John “French” Kerry was lost seen orbiting some distant planet, from Jackson Diehl, Washington Post:

John Kerry’s Middle East dream world

Imagine a world in which the Middle East is not descending into carnage and chaos but is on the brink of a monumental series of breakthroughs. By next spring,Iran’s nuclear program will be secured and Egypt will be a liberal democracy. Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad has stepped aside. And, not least, Israelis and Palestinians have settled on the terms for a Palestinian state.

This is the world that John Kerry inhabited as he shuttled across the world last week: a fantastical realm created by his billowing vision of what he can accomplish as secretary of state

Now imagine a world, where both our President and Secretary of State were sane and sober.
