Searching for signs of intelligent life.

The GOP base has apparently realized that they can't beat Obama with a tea-party whacko or simpleton, so all of a sudden it has become Newt vs Mitt for the ticket.   The party has 3+ years to figure out who to run and we get these two retreads to pick from?  Neither of them will beat Obama.  Jon Huntsman is the only GOP candidate that could possibly gain enough support from the middle to win the general election but time is running short for the GOP voters to face up to that and support Huntsman.

Anyways, while I search for signs of intelligence in the GOP, there are some other folks out there who have an even more daunting task.  Listening for AM radio signals from planets hundreds of light years away to look for evidence of life out there.    

Search Resumes for Evidence of Life Out There   
Astronomers announced Monday that they had taken E.T. off hold and resumed searching for radio signals from extraterrestrial civilizations with a set of radio telescopes in Hat Creek, Calif. The project, part of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or SETI, was suspended in April when the University of California’s Hat Creek Observatory ran out of money...
“We are going to need public support,” she said.

Apparently, now that we have evidence from NASA's Kepler satellite that there are other planets out there that likely have surface temperatures where liquid water could exist it has rejuvenated hope that the aliens will be swimming around in the water and listening to tunes on the AM radio.

I think it is more likely that we will hear alien radio signals than the GOP base will get smart all of a sudden and start to support Jon Huntsman and turn the race.  I could be wrong though.  Stranger things have happened.
