"I'm not bad... I'm just drawn that way."

Continuing on the theme of the political humpery of science, I'm pleased to forward a message from the Union of Concerned Scientists:

Three top cartoonists have joined with the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to kick off the organization's second annual "Science Idol" scientific integrity cartoon contest to draw humorous attention to a very serious issue: political interference in science.

Can you draw? Are you sick of the way the White House has bastardized reality? Then pick up a pen, put on your tin foil hat, draw a cartoon, and submit it to Science Idol.

If I could draw, I'd be all over this. Sadly, I'm only gifted with this incredible writing talent.
