Ain't that the truth.

Good thing the Saturn V life cycle is already done, otherwise:

--ULA would try to kill it and replace with multiple EELV launches

--Rand Simberg would call it pork

--JPL would try to raid its budget after being spoiled by Dan Golden handing out Delta II sounding rockets like they were the lollypops handed out by an alcoholic father to silence noisy kids in the back seat of the car--they whine if you want to save candy money on a filling meal at the end of the day:
