NASA Is Really Run By Right Wing GOP 24 Year Old Boy


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Ever since Super Brat, Bush, hijacked America, he has installed fellow frat style creeps in positions of responsibility all over the place. He had them run Iraq's economy which is now a disaster area, he had them run FEMA which turned disaster areas into super disasters. And he has them running NASA and of course, NASA is collapsing. A heck of a job, army of Brownies.

From the NYT:
A week after NASA's top climate scientist complained that the space agency's public-affairs office was trying to silence his statements on global warming, the agency's administrator, Michael D. Griffin, issued a sharply worded statement yesterday calling for "scientific openness" throughout the agency.

"It is not the job of public-affairs officers," Dr. Griffin wrote in an e-mail message to the agency's 19,000 employees, "to alter, filter or adjust engineering or scientific material produced by NASA's technical staff."
Griffin is a far right winger nut case. I warned NASA employees in the beginning, he was going to allow Bush and his fellow lunatics run the show into the ground and I was right, as usual.

For Griffin to pretend he had no idea that the far rightwing Texas tot he himself installed in a position of authority in NASA is just too silly for words. How dare he. He was touted as the hands-on super smart guy who would fix NASA and all I see is wall to wall destruction and misdirection. The know-nothings that fill every possible government position were placed there by the heads of departments so I am demanding that Griffin resign.

For example, this news is straight out of the Stalin "political officer" playbook:
Other National Aeronautics and Space Administration scientists and public-affairs employees came forward this week to say that beyond Dr. Hansen's case, there were several other instances in which political appointees had sought to control the flow of scientific information from the agency.

They called or e-mailed The Times and sent documents showing that news releases were delayed or altered to mesh with Bush administration policies.

In October, for example, George Deutsch, a presidential appointee in NASA headquarters, told a Web designer working for the agency to add the word "theory" after every mention of the Big Bang, according to an e-mail message from Mr. Deutsch that another NASA employee forwarded to The Times.
How could Mr. Super Smart, Hands On Griffin not know what his own office was doing? Is he spaced out? Is he NASA's Ken Lay, Mr. "I'm out of the loop" NASA?

No wonder the agency is dying. I can see it all over the place. Now that Bush is totally unpopular, the poor scientists at NASA are no longer being censored by the press. They now dare to strike back against these idiots running the show. Mr. Deutsch, by the way, is only 24 years old, a very connected Texas brat brought in to muzzle NASA scientists and his ability to do this was gained with the tacit approval of Griffin.

This monumentally stupid political operative was peddling the dumb "intelligent design" crap that seems to be the ultimate sign of brain rot afflicting America. As we fight a war to the death with Muslim funamentalists, we let our own minds collapse into cottage cheese.

Griffin has been leading a fool's errand since day one. His entire plan is to misdirect NASA until it is totally nonfunctional so that the GOP can crow that the government can't run things and then sell NASA off to private investors. In other words, this is yet another right wing conspiracy to steal public resources and sell them at a huge loss to rich people who will then use it for their own purposes just like they want to sell the weather satellite feed to private investors who then keep it all secret unless you pay them off!

Gads. This pisses me off.
