Palin pledges to continue the Republican War on Science

From the mouth of the ignorant and poorly educated Sarah Palin:
You've heard about some of these pet projects they really don't make a whole lot of sense and sometimes these dollars go to projects that have little or nothing to do with the public good. Things like fruit fly research in Paris, France. I kid you not.

Wait a second, I thought Palin was interested in providing for 'special needs' kids?

Palin is obviously is ignorant of the fact that scientific research with fruit flies has led to valuable discoveries that have boosted autism research. A discovery, made in Drosophila fruit flies may lead to advances in understanding autism spectrum disorders. For example, human neurexins have been identified as a genetic risk factor for autism. The study of fruit flies has also been used for other autism research and revolutionized the study of birth defects.

But of course, what would a dumbass moose hunter ditz like Palin need with science? She has the holy spirit to guide her. Her slut daughter could have been helped by the sex-ed programs that she opposes. Her retarded baby could be helped by some of the very science she dismisses. What a stupid bitch.

A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for ignorance.

Ha. My dad's a geneticist and did some amazing research with fruit flies. Didn't think I'd hear about those buggers out of the blue -- and certainly not in context of a Palin speech. Of course she won't retract... she made error in telling her followers about Obama's inaugural speech having been written (purportedly from *seeing* a NYT headline VERSUS *reading* the artcle itself). I don't expect her to be retracting that, or any other of the myriad fabrications, any time soon!
