Default Robert Zubrin-Mars Advocate

I'm totally in line with NASA's Return to the Moon project. It seems the logical place to start to reboot manned space exploration into our distant star system. We've already proven we can get there, now we can go back with technologies we didn't have the first time around. We already have some basic knowledge learned the first time around and know what more we need to learn and do once there. Enter Mars Advocate Robert Zubrin, he wants us to go to Mars now, says it can be done cheaply with existing technologies. Personally, i think he wants it so badly its clouding his judgement. Does it make any sense to go to Mars now? Its farther and presents more challenges than Moon colonization. Shouldn't we go to the Moon first? Is Zubrin just off his rocker?
