|So, to recap, when Obama requests money for an educational tool that makes money, and hence helps the economy, this is bad.|
When McCain requests $10 million for "William H. Rehnquist Center on Constitutional Structures and Judicial Independence", three times what the planetarium cost, during the same time period, this is important, wise spending.
I'd still have disagreed with him on funding, but I wouldn't have minded the planetarium issue being brought up if McCain had used some of that "straight talk" he's supposed to be so good at. Calling a planetarium projection system an "overhead projector" is blatantly dishonest. It's like calling the Spirit and Opportunity rovers radio-controlled toys.

Straight Talk go thrown under the bus long ago. He's been outright lying for a while now - dishonesty is an improvement.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
