The Republican War on Science, but Flaccid

The word on the street is that the Pope is about to go from casual affection to an outright embrace of intelligent design.

Shortly thereafter, if ID follows the stem cell pattern these days, a group of defunded paleontologists will form a company and write an article in Nature in which they defend really intelligent evolution, hoping to please the pope.

The Republican War on Science by Chris Mooney is the answer to these problems, of course, and Art Caplan reminded me that a new, paperback version with some new material is just out. As if the stem cell boneheads weren't going to sell enough of Chris' books.
