The GOP is run by men who avoid soldiering at all costs and who fetishize the capabilities of soldiers.

Democrats against Bridenstine dislike his outspoken divisiveness, his past rejection of mainstream climate change science and his lack of space experience.

That last charge is not true at all!

It’s been widely reported that, when Bridenstine was in college, he took up space.

Look for NASA to cancel future missions looking at Earth’s climate. It’ll be like the Mulvaney and the CFPB dropping all ongoing investigations and law suits.

One would think that Flake would be ashamed to ever show his face again after abandoning his “principles” and switching his vote . . . but I know better.

If you’re a “war hero” you are qualified for any job - end of story.

(Unless, of course. your name is John Kerry or George McGovern)

But the European Space Agency and the Chinese won’t. America, the dragging boat anchor with a nuclear arsenal.

“Democrats against Bridenstine dislike his outspoken divisiveness, his past rejection of mainstream climate-change science and his lack of space experience.”

Note to AP: There’s no such thing as “mainstream climate-change science”.

There’s only plain, old "climate-change science"…

vs. belief in a 6,000 year-old earth, shape-shifting reptoids, and the Chupacabra.

If nothing else, Bridenstine is going to fit right in.

An investigation and review of public records by the Project On Government Oversight shows that, prior to his time in Congress, Bridenstine led a small non-profit organization into hefty financial losses. Some of the losses involved the use of the non-profit’s resources to benefit a company that Bridenstine simultaneously co-owned and in which he’d invested substantial sums of his own money.

But republicans praised him as a war hero.

Killed lots of brown people. That’s the only qualification needed in Trump’s America.
