... and partisanship above all

As if we needed any more proof - Bush's administration is highly partisan and displays animosity to science and public good.

Dr. Richard Carmona, Surgeon General from 2002 to 2006, has finally accused current administration of partisan meddling in science and health. Dr. Carmona was forced to be a doctor of certain political views, not a doctor of the nation. Issues that were highly scripted, muzzled, or otherwise interfered with included the usual suspects: abstinence-only education, contraceptives, and stem-cell research. Apparently, the state of affairs in government-sponsored science "has never been as partisan, as malicious, as vindictive, as mean-spirited as it is today." Maybe there is even an internal White House memorandum titled "For Sexually Illiterate America."

Ah, only one year and six months more to go...
