    which 4 would you choose? I'd send 2 Rs and 2 Ds:

    Newt Gingrich
    Debbie Wasserman Schultz
    Dick Cheney
    Nancy Pelosi

      Please don't send Nancy.  It will only confuse her more.

        Nancy may be the only one who can legally leave the Earth - she has a passport and her visitor visa has expired.

          Only 4? I was hoping it would be by groups. I'd list the entire Congress and Senate. I agree by exiling Edwards and Cheney but they’re no longer active. I'd keep Ron Paul and Gingrich around because they're basically “Comic Relief Politicians“. Although Gingrich wants to establish a moon colony, maybe he should be the first to be the "pioneer". Is Sarah Palin still active in politics?  If she is, she’d be considered a half-politician since she quit her governor’s job. Keep her around, she’s hilarious! Anyway, my choice of active politicians to the moon would be Santorum, Romney, McDonnel - Governor of Virginia, and Mitch McConnell.

      Oh that's so easy to answer....she is from Alaska....she will not stop talking....she will not stop annoying others....she will not go away....since she has the ego and ambition of four people then I would just send her so the rest of us can have some well-deserved peace and quiet.

      Question: Does hot air from the politicians affect lift off? If so, unfortunately they're all earth bound forever.

      There are many moons. Which moon are you sending them to? There is an old joke about lawyers. There are a number of lawyers on a beach buried in sand up to their necks. What is wrong with this picture? Answer: Not enough sand. Couldn't this apply? - not enough moons.

      I apologize to all honorable lawyers and politicians. I know a few of them but sorry to say I know more who are not.

      It depends on whether it was a one or two way trip, and how long would they be there.

    17. profile image0

      One way trip with no chance of getting back?

      Barack Hussein Obama
      Harry Reid
      Debbie Wasserman Schultz
      Maxine Waters

      Nancy Pelosi as a stow away because she heard booze would be available on the trip.

      Well, of the current nutjobs.

      Rick Santorum
      Michelle Bachman
      John Boener (bone head)
      George W. Bush.

      And, Sarah palin standing at the bottom of the launch pad to cheer them on at lift off! Instead of Drill baby drill. We'll all be singing disco inferno!

      I would like to give a few more a special ticket for the ride. Even build a luxury seating area in the cargo hold of the shuttle, with a giant slingshot that catapults them into space, so that they never come back.

      Or maybe give the rocket just enough gas so that it leaves the earth, and circles long enough for them all to drop dead before crashing to the earth in a fireball, where the rest lands safely in a volcano.

      What about Donald Trump?

      1. brimancandy profile image78
        brimancandyposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        I think Donald trump would only be satisfied being President of the United States if his hair was the vice president. As Robin Williams once said, his hair tells him what to say, and then slithers back onto his head like a cockroach or a spider. He would probably jus tell everyone that they are fired, and be the only employed person in the country.
