Appointment leads to Disappointment

My conviction that George W. is the worst president of all time grows stronger every day. Not only are his political beliefs out in space, but he is fundamentally incompetent as a leader. In part, this is because of his beliefs, which severely limit the pool of people who will work for him.

Now we have, only a few months after the fiasco with Brownie, where a horse-breeder was installed as the head of FEMA at the cost of hundreds of human lives, a Bush appointee at NASA resigning on the day that news reports are published that he doesn't actually have the university degree he mentioned on his resume! Why couldn't Bush get a real scientist? Because he asked the man to claim that climate change was a myth and that the Big Bang was just a theory, and very few people have managed to succeed in a scientific program of study while still believing these right-wing folk tales.

from the nytimes:

"George C. Deutsch, the young presidential appointee at NASA who told public affairs workers to limit reporters' access to a top climate scientist and told a Web designer to add the word "theory" at every mention of the Big Bang, resigned yesterday, agency officials said.

Mr. Deutsch's resignation came on the same day that officials at Texas A&M University confirmed that he did not graduate from there, as his résumé on file at the agency asserted."
