Bruce Sterling has an opinion article thats a good summary of how the Bush Administration is damaging science and skewing research in the U.S.
When politicians dictate science, government becomes entangled in its own deceptions, and eventually the social order decays in a compost of lies. Society, having abandoned the scientific method, loses its empirical referent, and truth becomes relative. This is a serious affliction known as Lysenkoism.
This really needs to change. Distoring scientific facts is a big no-no. You cannot smear science the same way you can smear Kerry. The practice definitely makes me red faced.
