The Daily Show, Republicans, and the War on Science

Aasif Mandvi, Daily Show correspondent offers a funny piece on the Republican war on science.

The science fair kids in the video certainly seem a lot smarter than the GOP nominees featured in the beginning of the video or Noelle Nikpour, the Republican strategist.

I'm putting my money on the kids and science.


  1. Is that Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour serious? I swear that she's a deadpan satirist in hiding! This is one of the most disappointing strategies of the Republican candidates -- to attack science and scientists. Makes me sad to hear the Republican candidates show such anger and bitterness toward academia. This is a hilarious take on the issue. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sure, glad you enjoyed the clip. It would be great if we could see greater respect for science from members of both political parties.
