|"We have probed, examined, and dissected, but as far as we can tell there is NO intelligence within the Republican party."|
One of the great political shifts in the past decade has been the move of scientists toward the Democratic Party, a casualty of the Republican Party’s war on reality. It’s not about politics for scientists, it’s about the fact that only one party accepts scientific findings on everything from global warming to evolutionary theory to what does and doesn’t prevent pregnancy. Only 6 percent of scientists identify as Republican, whereas 55 percent identify as Democratic. In October of 2012, 68 Nobel-winning scientists co-signed a strong endorsement of Obama, saying the President “has delivered on his promise to renew our faith in science-based decision making.”
To me this is one of those facts that I would probably simply assume even WITHOUT the evidence to back it up.
But of course it IS backed up by evidence, which is why the Republicans will never accept it, because, as we know, "facts have a liberal bias."
Now if only women, minorities, and younger Americans will follow the lead of these scientists. (Unless of course they already are.)
