  1. Those Democrats and their damn science.

  2. Well, there’s that, too, but I was mainly struck by how politically tone-deaf it seemed to be.

    Claiming you’re going to sort out government finances by cracking down on earmarks doesn’t make much economic sense at the best of times — it’s too small a part of the federal budget — but I can see that it could be politically effective.

    But when the government has just passed a seven hundred thousand million dollar bank bailout, is there anyone who’s going to hear McCain muttering about some two-bit planetarium somewhere and not think: what the fuck are you talking about? What planet are you on? Have you not seen the news recently?
