    If I were a petty person I would point out to rdean that Republicans are not the only ones who hate science. Since I am not I will simply point out that politics and science do not mix.

    I saw this over at Reason the other day. The video is well worth watching.

    The left seems to give up thinking when they have a liberal president in office. At one time they used to say "question authority" but now you can come up with the most outrageous findings funded by a lavish federal grant and the left trusts it without even reading it. The left is so zombie like under liberal administrations that you can take away their energy source and their livelyhood and tell them any number of lies and they will swallow it just like Monica.

    I too heard the nationwide soft scratching sound of Liberals removing their "Question Authority" and "Dissent is Patriotic" stickers from there cars in November 2008.

    Ah yes, diesel particulates should be added to the long list of things that the Conservatives know are good for your health, like cigarettes, ddt, and radiation.

    Speaking of anti-science liberals...

    As to cigarettes, I know of no pro-smoking Republicans, but there are quite a few anti-choice Liberals. As to radiation, WTF are you talking about?:lol:

    Life is bad for your health lefties. Sooner or later you are going to die. Cigarettes are legal. Democrat presidents smoked them when they were 20 cents a pack. Diesel fuel gets the stuff to Walmart that you libs secretly covet. Radiation keeps you ungrateful lefties alive when you seek medical attention in the greatest Country in the world. What energy technology has Obama come up with besides windmill technology that was abandoned four hundred years ago? What is it with the left that they seem to count on technology which has yet to be developed and blame existing technology for the comfort they enjoy?

    Who said it was good for anyone? What I am pointing out is that people like you are not concerned about science, you are concerned about politics. Politics should never trump science, and the simple fact that you think it should proves that you do not even rise to the level of partisan hack.
