Lamar Smith R-TX
Chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology committee. I found out about him recently. He is a christian dingbat who denies both human aided global warming and evolution. He still chairs an important scientific committee in the House.

If one needs further proof that we are at peril as a country because we allow the foxes into the hen house I do not know what to say.

I have no great love for either american political party (I am far to the left of both). But, to allow a person of such obvious failings to chair a committee who he has no reasonable reason to be part of points out the hubris and arrogance of the "republicans".

google his name you will be shocked by what you find. Remember it is the House Science, Space and Technology committee.

Shocked me when I first saw it also. I'm not sure whether I'm sad or relieved that our scientists aren't involved in politics. Consider

...and sentences shouldn't start with ellipses. And, "sorry" should have ben capitalized as a result. And I should have put a comma after "skip" and i should have capitalized "i".

There are a lot of shitheads in the GOP. Every so often a turd will float to the top of the seniority list on a committee.
