International Space Station Node Fight comes to a close

I don't want to give away the reveal, so I'll give the play by play and some commentary after the jump for those who can't see Hulu from their browser/reader/etc.

Colbert Makes It Personal

I keep trying to let this story fade, but Colbert keeps finding a way to make it news! As you may have heard, it's become a congressional issue since congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) declared his support. Now our own Tucson Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) hit back mocking the whole thing. This of course spurred Colbert, who won the NASA vote by "almost twice as many votes as [she] got to win [her] district in 2006," to insult the city of Tucson in his own unique way saying "You, miss pink sweater set, are just jealous because I'm gonna have a space node, and all you're gonna have is half of Tucson - and not even the good half. I'm kidding. There is no good half."
The congresswoman by the way is married to an astronaut and is an outspoken supporter of NASA. There's no objective reason to believe that "Serenity" is remotely a factor in the argument. Still, astronauts have been known to be Browncoats so I'm gonna do some research and get back to you on that.
