It took a while, but Stephen Colbert has finally gone on the offensive over NASA's hesitation to name its new space node for him even though his supporters won the contest to pick the name.
He's outraged NASA may go with the second choice. "Serenity? That's not a space station, that's an adult diaper," Colbert says.
He also notes that Philadelphia congressman Chaka Fattah has put out a statement saying Colbert won fair and square and "we insist" NASA use the name. (I wonder if Fattah thought he'd get any media coverage from a certain show for that.)
Colbert ends with a threat to become an evil tyrant overlord if democracy is ignored in this case, so we're all under the gun while NASA dithers.
