Akin the science major

This is from the LA Times... "So what's so scary about Todd Akin? It's that he currently sits on the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology", which oversees federal spending on non-defense-related research. This is not the kind of post for someone who thinks pregnancy can be suppressed by women's bodies. He also sits on the Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, which is not the ideal assignment for a guy who thinks that climate change, if it's happening at all, is probably a result of solar flares. This is, of course, the House the tea party built. Unless voters put a stop to this anti-science movement, the Senate could soon go the same way. Now that's a nightmare."


  1. I heard on NPR that his Democrat opponent did a happy dance when the won the nomination. I wonder how she feels now? Time for him to go back to Missouri permanently!

  2. What is it about Missouri?
