The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years."

Chris Mooney (via Calpundit) reports on the Bush attack on scientific integrity in research conducted by federal agencies. You especially have to admire the bold Orwellian style of this disclaimer Chris notes that results "were not subjected to OSTP's Information Quality Act Guidelines". What that means, translated into English, is that this is actual science, and therefore not accepted as valid by the federal government until it has been reviewed by corporate lobbyists.
