From Max Blumenthal:
Self-styled science critic Tom Bethell's "The Politically Incorrect Guide To Science" reveals a lot more than the retrograde state of the conservative mind. Notice the book's tagline: "Liberals have hijacked science for long enough. Now it's our turn." So it's time for conservatives to hijack science, then? (This slogan was quietly changed on the book's paperback edition, but is preserved forever on Amazon.com.)On Thursday in this post to the right-wing attack on teacher ed specifically and the university in general, I pointed out that the wingnuts now view the historical facts as the results of a left-wing conspiracy. Apparently, such crackpot notions are not just limited to history.
