8. Who is John McCain to decide which scientific studies are "worthless"?
I didn't know he has a PhD.

He doesn't know shit about molecular biology, and he shouldn't try. Right now I'm looking at a sequence alignment of human, cow, rat, mouse, rabbit and chicken DNA. Comparing these sequences gives me enormous insight into which regions are important in the protein I research. The more sequences I have, the greater the power this prediction has. The more sequences I have, the less time and taxpayer money (yes, the government pays for my work) I have to waste "guessing" which areas might be important for human disease. These sequences are invaluable and John McCain can take his ignorant ass and go suck an egg.
