Had you noticed the Bush scandal at NASA?

Yet another Bush appointee bites the dust in disgrace. George C. Deutsch, appointed to be the NASA public affairs officer, with no credentials besides having worked on George W. Bush's re-election campaign, was, at 24, the guy who worked to shut up the NASA climate scientist mentioned here earlier, James E. Hansen. It turns out that Deutsch had lied on his resume and had not even graduated from Texas A & M, with an undergraduate degree. So, he resigns in disgrace, but not because he was attempting to censor scientific truth, which is the real disgrace in all this. His resignation came only because he lied to his employer.
