The Moon to Get U.S Statehood before D.C or Puerto Rico?

Okay, so Newt Gingrich wants to build a permanent moon base.  Can anyone else picture Mr. Gingrich in some kind of control tower on this space base broadcasting angry messages to Earth?  

Anyway, that's not the weirdest part.  Gingrich once (in the 1981 National Aeronautics and Space Policy Act) outlined the proposed governing structure of the Moon including an allowance for the colony to obtain statehood.  

I wonder if he would consider such a thing for D.C and Puerto Rico.
