As you may have noticed,  the Congressional committee on Science & Technology (or whatever its official title is) is heavily loaded with Republicans who firmly believe  science is out to destroy their religion and Way Of Life.   Clearly one of the big challenges will be to fix this particular mess.  A POTUS can select cabinet members with a proper (from my perspective) respect for science,  but changing pretty much anything in Congress is tough (everyone who’s about to suggest a variation of The Pelican Brief, please don’t — I’d hate to have my constituents hauled off to CIA black houses before they can vote 🙂 ).   

Therefore, I’d like to urge my millions ( hah) of supporters to establish a Science in Congress PAC in every possible district, with the intent of electing a few more Representatives who can separate their belief system from their responsibilities as politicians.
