    Most scientists in this country are Democrats. That's a problem. - By Daniel Sarewitz - Slate Magazine

    I was shocked! Shocked, I say, to learn this!

    And who gives scientists their funding? Usually Democrats. That is why most identify with the Demos.

    Pew Research has embarrassed themselves more than once with this kind of statistical malfeasance.

    7% are maybe like me and do not think either party really deserves their support.

    It is really hard to be a scientist and a Republican, research grants for how Jesus rode on a Brontosaurs’' back are hard to come by in the world of science.

    Even Obama's stimulus fun ride did not cover that one.

    I agree. It's a damn shame. Had they not gotten away with it your grandparents probably would have died from smallpox and your ignorant ass wouldn't be stealing precious oxygen.

    Edward Jenner was not a Republican, Democrat or American.

    And everyone knows Louis Pasture was a Frog.

    And Edward Koch was a Prussian Kraut.

    Since Walter Reed was an Army officer back in the days of William McKinley, we might infer he was Republican. I don't have his voting records.

    Jonas Salk was American. Also Jewish. We might infer he was a Democrat, but the that would still be a WAG.

    And your point?
