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.

yes its scary- just when we thought we were going to get rid of the most stupid guy in the world along comes the most stupid woman in the world :(

Labour has its faults but at least they support science and actually know what it is - but then again- they also like 'faith'schools

Let us hope that Palin along with McCain is consigned to the halls of political parody and ridicule for eternity.
