Politicians are people who are too ugly to be musicians

..and too stupid to leave the science to scientists. They like to make decisions for others only if it is "something in it for them". They have evolved in the most useless species of human.

Wired News: A Election: Science Plays Politics

Scientists' feud with the Bush administration, building for almost four years, has intensified this election year. The White House has sacked prominent scientists from presidential advisory committees, science advocacy groups have released lengthy catalogs of alleged scientific abuses by the administration and both sides have traded accusations at meetings and in the pages of research journals.

"People are shocked by what's going on," said Kurt Gottfried, a Cornell University physicist and chairman of the Union of Concerned Scientists, which has been in the vanguard of the campaign against the administration's science policy. Although generally not political, the group -- which advocates for use of accurate scientific information in policymaking -- has occasionally taken liberal positions, such as opposition to nuclear weapons.

WTF??? Opposition to nuclear weapons is liberal??? What do we need those for when people can't count votes? ...when there's "chemical warfare". I wonder how much more advanced we would be if scientists didn't have to hide certain technologies so that they wouldn't be exploited by the government.

I hate politics.
