Mark Udall: STILL the Candidate to Save the Planet from Destruction by Asteroids

Every once in awhile we work to write something explicitly nice about our least preferred candidate in the U.S. Senate race, Mark Udall. This is the most recent example.

On the national security front, it seems Democrat Senate candidate Mark Udall is still honing his reputation as a warrior against incoming asteroid invasion. As the Bad Astronomy blog points out, today is the 100th anniversary of a damaging asteroid blow to Earth. But who is the hero we can count on to save us from future disaster?
So I congratulate those who study these killers, and who look to our future....And I especially stand up and point to Congress — including my own Representative Mark Udallwhich has the foresight to mandate that NASA look into the dangers from the Near Earth Asteroid Apophis.
Mark Udall may indeed be the best-equipped candidate in this race to protect us from destruction by asteroids.
