Newsweek's Richard Wolffe stepped out on that limb we know as commentary, with a strong heart felt statement about Sarah Palin's unforgivable gaffe involving fruit fly research. Keith Olberman thank god brought the story up.
We had a similar situation in Wisconsin from a few Republican legislators who wanted to withdraw funding from the University of Wisconsin because of frivolous research on how students play video games. A statement released by those very researchers explained the importance of observing game playing, in order to develop video LEARNING software that students would enjoy using, while gaining vast amounts of information.
These people just don't get it.
