Hunting For Pro-Science Republicans (Limerick)

Luckily for Obama, Jon Huntsman is way too sane to snag the Republican Presidential nomination. For instance, on Sunday’s THIS WEEK with ABC’s Jack Tapper, Huntsman deplores the Republican Party’s anti-science drift:

HUNTSMAN: I think there’s a serious problem. The minute that the Republican Party becomes the party – the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. We lose a whole lot of people who would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012. When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Science – Sciences has said about what is causing climate change and man’s contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position.

Huntsman is certainly right about this disturbing trend. And that leads me to my latest limerick:

Hunting For Pro-Science Republicans
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The scientists can’t be believed,
And scholars sure leave them aggrieved.
Don’t trust any source—
That’s the GOP course:
Calling facts they don’t like ill-conceived.

    Bravo Mad!

    Reminds me of the anti-evolutionist, flea-bagger with the sign that read “I Believe in Cretionism!”

    Facts are only for the educated.

    Republicans are on the side of science when it comes to abortion (biology dictates that a fetus is a living human being, and the Declaration of Independence grants everyone the “right to life), NASA (Obama ruined any chance of our going back into space anytime soon and turned NASA instead into a make-Muslims-feel-good-about-themselves organization), stem-cell research (all the breakthroughs come from adult stem cells, which is what Repubs support), gay marriage (evolution dictates that homosexuality is NOT normal and is in fact a mutation), global warming (see the “ClimateGate” coverup).

    Other than all that, though, yeah, Democrats are really pro-science.
