i kid you not

So, Sarah Palin recently denounced spending on fruit-fly research, saying that it was the kind of elitist research that takes place in “France.” Nevermind that the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) is one of the most useful laboratory specimens for researching JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. Please read the article in Slate by Christopher Hitchens called “Sarah Palin’s War on Science.” Palin is like a middle school kid who thinks its cool to be dumb. Just like this Kaiser Chief’s song (which I really like)!

  1. Video doesn’t work. How disappointing.

  2. I love how liberals are so willing to quote Hitchens right now. This is the same man who is considered [one of] the father[s] of neoconservatism and also an outspoken supporter of the Iraq war. It makes me laugh. Like Colin Powell’s endorsement of “The Chosen One”. This is the same Colin Powell that sat in front of the UN Security Council and lied…right?
