give the man his node already

Apparently Stephen Colbert has been campaigning to get Node 3 of the International Space Station named after himself – NASA was having an Internet poll in which people could suggest ideas, and of course “Stephen Colbert” promptly won once Stephen put the word out among his followers.  It saddens me that I haven’t been watching the Report regularly enough lately to follow the drama on his show as it unfolds, but now NASA is waffling about whether they’re actually going to abide by the poll results.

C’mon, NASA.  The man already has a species of trapdoor spider named after him, and you’ve been trying to show how you’re all hip lately, what with that MMORPG and all – could there be a better way to show your hipness than naming something after Stephen?
