Wait till Jenna starts running the Department of Agriculture

Well, another stellar Bush political appointee making news again.

George Deutsch, a young appointee to NASA, has had to resign from a public affairs post at the space agency after it was disclosed he lied about graduating from college.

But, that’s not the scary part. Before being caught, this asshole, all of 24, had the balls to direct a NASA Web designer to add the word “theory” after every mention of the Big Bang, the phenomenon widely accepted by astronomers as the moment eons ago when the universe coalesced and became what we know it today. He also had told public affairs officers to limit press access to a top climate expert, whose warnings on global warming were upsetting the Bushies and their business allies.

As The Times dryly puts it: “Mr. Deutsch, 24, was offered a job as a writer and editor in NASA's public affairs office in Washington last year after working on President Bush's re-election campaign and inaugural committee, according to his résumé. No one has disputed those parts of the document.

According to his résumé, Mr. Deutsch received a "Bachelor of Arts in journalism, Class of 2003."

Yesterday, officials at Texas A&M said that was not the case.”

It is really frightening what the Bush regime is doing to the scientific community in this country today.

They dispute global warming and its potentially calamitous effects on our environment. They denigrate evolution in favor of a thinly disguised religious snow job called Intelligent Design. And now they were caught trying to call into doubt the Big Bang. Because, you know, God created heaven and earth in 7 days and all that.

Deutsch’s bull shit was discovered, fortunately, when a genuine Texas A&M graduate with a degree in biochemistry heard of the new rules at NASA and got suspicious of the little punk's educational background.

And the climate scientist who had spoken out about global warming warns the hubbub about Deutsch’s resume should not distract from the real concern: "He's only a bit player," Dr. James E. Hansen said of Mr. Deutsch. " The problem is much broader and much deeper and it goes across agencies. That's what I'm really concerned about."

Hey, toosaucy. Did you know that if you google Bally 107, out of the 255,000 web pages, your blog is #1! I bet he/she wouldn't appreciate helping people find your blog.

hah - I did not know that. I doubt too many people Google her very often.

Gee, let's hope not! That would mean that people actually take her seriously. Maybe we can spread the word about googling her, then the number of readers on your blog will dramatically increase. Great publicity!

Never mind her, you're getting away from the point of the post. I think it's very scary that this is happening under Bush. We see what happens when religious fanatics take over governments in the middle east. How far away are we from that here when they start trying to influence NASA and school boards teaching evolution.
