"He is, by any measure, unqualified to make decisions about science, space, and technology."
He’s discussing Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), who is known for two things:
- Asserting that evolution and the Big Bang theory are “all lies straight from the pit of Hell.”
- Serving on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Can’t change #1, but I think we should change #2.
How a nutcase like Broun got elected, let alone serve on a House Committee, should be looked into. There’s no way you can be that dumb, have a position, and not be backed by someone or something with a few strings to pull. On that note, anyone with any position in this society had to be. -_-
