Newt, Obama and Algae

I’m fighting a serious algae problem in one of my aquariums, so I was intrigued by a proposal by the president to use algae as fuel. Unfortunately, Speaker Gingrich wants to spoil the fun:

“Maybe we should, as an experiment, get some algae and go to a gas station, and you know, sort of the ‘Barack Solution.’ Would you like some algae instead of gasoline? This is the kind of stuff that’s Cloud Cuckoo Land.”

Of course, one might ask Newt about some of his interesting “big ideas,” such as space mirrors and lunar colonies.
