Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Getting the Nerd Vote

While reading a blog entry on nerdy political activism (left-wing edition), I wondered what each party's Presidential campaign could do to get the nerd vote.

The Republicans could:

Meanwhile the Democrats could:

  • Replace the lame Lobbyists for McCain attempt at satire with “Schoolyard bullies for McCain.”
  • Promise to put Lawrence Lessig on the Supreme Court.

Both sides could promise to deregulate crippled and lobotomized chemistry sets. The only difference would be in who they blame.

The idea that Republicans are "anti-science" is the most immense lie the Democrats have managed to put over on the American people.

Let me get this straight: the party that opposes space exploration, opposes genetic engineering, wants to shut down biomedical research by socializing the pharmaceutical industry, has halted nuclear power in its tracks for a generation, and has politicized environmental studies and anthropology to the point they are barely sciences at all, is nevertheless somehow the "pro-science" party?
