Sarah Palin v Drosophila Research
At 5:10 into the above video:
"I'm going to be as restrained and measured as I possibly can; but this is the most mindless, ignorant, uninformed comment that we have seen from Sarah Palin in this campaign so far, and there's been a lot of competition for that prize ... if you deliver your first serious policy speech and you make this kind of basic error, you either don't have a scientific advisor, or you don't have a speechwriter who knows what they're saying."
This time last year, Prime Minister Gordon Brown formally added his support for extra funding to get children as young as 8 interested in science.
Can you spot the difference between what McCain/Palin is advocating, and what Brown is advocating? I may not much like Labour these days, but at least they're not fucking the sciences.
I swear, if McCain gets voted in, the whole damn world will suffer for it. America is far too influential, politically and economically, for it not to have a world-wide effect.
