Science and Politics

Saw an article in CNN this morning about a report by the Union of Concerned Scientests about politicial manipulation of government-controlled scientific institutes. Using "political loyalty" tests on new candidates is particularly apalling, if only because it's so blatant.

I think this is one of the things that's the most galling about the Bush administration. It's not just that they play all these partisan games about pushing their own agenda, it's that they're so blantant about how they go about it that it's like their rubbing our noses in it and daring us to do something about it.
