People are always wondering why the Founding Fathers were so opposed to science being taught in schools. This clip goes a long way toward explaining it. You see, if your brain is all busy a'thinkin' and a'wondrin' about ties and moons and oceans and stuff, it's probably not busy silently reciting the Pledge of Allegiance over and over again. And that breeds liberalism…

I was gonna write a post about how Michele Bachmann has discovered who's really responsible for teabaggers' racist/homophobic behavior (Hint: It's Nancy Pelosi, obviously), but then I started thinking that maybe I've been hurting your brain with all the smart smartness I've been posting today. So, I decided that I should really give your brain a rest, and post this clip of Neil deGrasse Tyson explaining what about NASA means for our country's future and why funding it is probably almost certainly for sure not a waste a money…
That felt good, huh? Okay, now back to more intellectual endeavors, like Sarah Palin's TV special and how it was just as good as everybody thought it would be.
