The Politicization of Science Under ()

Remember when the left told us that if we voted for McCain we would see the continued undermining of science for political ends? Well, I voted for McCain and look what happened.

From Breitbart:

Academics, environmentalists and federal investigators have accused the administration since the April spill of downplaying scientific findings, misrepresenting data and most recently misconstruing the opinions of experts it solicited.

Meanwhile, the owner of the rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, Transocean Ltd., is renewing its argument that federal investigators are in danger of allowing the blowout preventer, a key piece of evidence, to corrode as it awaits forensic analysis. Testing had not begun as of last week, the company says, some two months after it was raised from the seafloor.
It seems that ignoring science, engineering and economics is a bipartisan sport.

Meanwhile Louisiana sends a delegation of six Republicans and only one Democrat to the House of Representatives. (Check Huey Long's grave for rotation.) Meanwhile, Republican David Vitter, won re-election to the Senate with a whopping 57% majority despite being linked to a D.C. call girl scandal. From the Tri-Parish Times:

Vitter's problems amounted to more than a blot. He was the "serious sin" senator, linked by phone records to a call girl business run by Washington's "D.C. Madam," Deborah Palfrey.

No matter. He won 57 percent of the vote to Melancon's 38 percent, after successfully tying Melancon to every Obama policy unpopular with Louisiana voters - except in Richmond's 2nd District.
Obama's handling of the BP Oil Spill continues to haunt him.

Over and over on DailyKos, during the run up to the 2008 elections, I kept reading how Democrats were the party that was "competent" to run the federal government. Hope lefties are enjoying this particular crap sandwich.
