Rigging a study to make conservatives look stupid.

The Left has historically co-opted science to benefit its political causes. Margaret Mead is a classic example, gaining enormous attention to promote the "Free Love" movement. Her methodology has come to be deeply suspect. We've had Alfred Kinsey. We've had Darwin as a justification for Eugenics and Nazism (Darwin`s son was president of the Eugenics Society).

We've also had numerous dubious environmental scares; Dioxin, Alar, DDT, etc. We've had the Nuclear Winter Theory, used to justify the nuclear freeze movement. We now have Anthropogenic Global Warming. In each of these examples the Left has either subverted, or outright manipulated, science for their purposes. This is no different.

In the end, it's all about the results.

"OK, so there was no WMD. The war was run badly by Bush and Rumsfeld. But now the professionals are running it and we're starting to win. Let us finish the job. You don't like them, but you respect us. Don't let us down, like you did in Vietnam."

Bill Maher takes on the 911 "Truth" Movement.

I don't like Maher that much, he's brash, arrogant and wrong on a lot of major issues but here he's done a major public service.
