Science and the Right

I'm liking Andrew Sullivan's site even more that he's on vacation. Never thought I'd say that, but this current post by Jim Manzi nails the disconnect that many conservatives are making when it comes to science and the policy decisions science results bring to the table. By attacking science itself (or spending millions of dollars on pseudo-science like ID), conservatives bring upon themselves the title of "non-thinkers."

It doesn't help that this current Administration slashes science budgets, re-writes science reports to suit political ends, and seemingly puts out their policy conclusions before (or instead of) scientific facts.
