Go Aggies

Youthful political hack George Deutsch has been forced out of NASA's public affairs office after tut-tutting scientists about ignoring intelligent design in references to the Big Bang. Turns out he didn't graduate from Texas A&M as he had claimed. Great that he's out of there, though he is just a symptom of a broader problem within NASA and the government.

Sadly, this will be the best thing that ever happened to Deutsch. There is no such thing as bad publicity in the culture wars. He is now a hero of the religious right, and has a bright future in GOP advocacy. We'll be hearing more from him in the near future.
