McCain vs. Science (again)

May 1st, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

No, Senator, “pork spending” does NOT magically generate design flaws in bridges. While one can understand WHY McCain might try the George W. Bush trick of associating every problem with an issue he’s viewed as being strong on dealing with (9/11 for Bush, pork spending for McCain), it’s just awkward when he swings and misses this badly. This is TEN TIMES worse than his Iran/al Qaeda flub from a few weeks back. That was misspeaking, this is being flat out wrong.

I’m going to be very annoyed if Huckabee convinces him to somehow associate evolution with pork spending.
