Doonesbury chimes in on Conservative "Science".
1st Panel: student hunched over calculator:
"That can't be right!"
2nd Panel: Calculator flies into wastebasket.
"Time for a new calculator!"
3rd Panel: Student bent over book
"Drat! These pesky scientific facts won't line up behind my beliefs!"
Stranger seen from behind:
"Then challenge them, Stewie!"
4th Panel: Stewie looking at Dr. Null
Stewie: "Holy Flat-Earther! It's White House Situational Science advisor, Dr. Nathan Null!
Null: "That's right Stewie, and I'm here to remind you..."
5th Panel: Dr. Null: "Situational science is about both sides of a scientific argument, not just the one supported by facts!"
6th Panel: Dr. Null: "That's why I always teach the controversy! Like the evolution controversy, or the global warming controversy..."
7th Panel: Dr. Null: "Not to mention the tobacco controversy, the mercury controversy, the pesticides controversy, the coal slurry controversy, the dioxin controversy, the Everglades controversy and the acid rain controversy."
8th Panel: Stewie: "You're right, Situational Scienceman - I'll never trust science again. It's just too controversial!"
Dr. Null: "Stewie gets it now, folks! Do you?"
Situational science. I like it. Beware of those facts that only support one side of an argument!
(Edited to change Hull to Null. [Kind of an appropriate name, actually.])
