Two posts by Jonathan Adler are worth noting. The first points out that there is nothing especially “Republican” about the supposed “Republican war on science”; Democrats are just as willing–if not more so–to wage war on science as well. Of course, we were assured during the Bush Administration that only Republicans hate scientists and that the supposed persecution of science would end with the advent of a Democratic President. So much for those dreams.
Need I mention that there is nothing “reality-based” about any of these shenanigans?
