Chris has his latest, greatest cartoon. It’s correct: you’re either nuts, short-sightedly stupid, or venal to an extreme if you support the Republican party in any way anymore.
If the usual denizens of this joint were forced to choose between acceptance of mainstream science becoming a tenet of the right, or continuing to use it as a stick to whack conservatives with, I have no illusions whatsoever about which they’d choose.
of course not. the illusions are all yours.
Why don’t you actually spend some time taking a gander at what the current administration has been doing to the reports from various science GO’s that it doesn’t “like”, eh?
the minute the republicans actually put an effort into representing science as something that doesn’t belong to the world of “geekdom”, i’ll be favorably impressed, let alone seeing them actually put a positive effort behind any field of science to begin with.
oh, do go on and show us how the republicans have been doing on the science front for the last 25 years or so, eh?
ignorant isn’t sufficient to explain your apparent stance on this issue.
I’m surprised, since it was the subject of a recent thread, that Chris Mooney’s book hasn’t come up as a reference more often (nods to Nate), but I would recommend you take a gander at it, if for no other reason than to at least give you a place to start to patch that gaping hole in your perceptions.
If I had a nickel for every GoP supporter who thinks that the issue is all about “hippie environmentalism”, I’d never have to work another day in my life, and I really COULD be a hippie.
