BURTON: The danger of underestimating Obama


It is a cardinal mistake in any competition, be it sports or politics - and politics is a competition of ideas - to underestimate your opponent. All too often, underestimating your opponent leads to disaster. I believe that America, especially America’s political class, is vastly underestimating President Obama; and if we continue to do so, it will be a disaster for America. Specifically, I am worried about the growing political story line that the Obama administration is “failing” because they are just inexperienced and the president is simply “in over his ...


Dan Burton's green jobs hypocrisy


Congressman Dan Burton's hypocrisy apparently knows no bounds. Burton, the cantankerous representative from IN5, has routinely criticized President Obama's commitment to green energy. The current Solyndra controversy has caused Rep. Burton to ramp up the rhetoric even more. But his current, public indignation about green energy is very different from his own actions. In fact, Rep. Burton lobbied for and supported using the exact same program that Solyndra used for the Abound Solar plant in Tipton. "Burton, the second-ranking Republican on the committee [the House Oversight Committee], ...


Schakowsky, Dan Burton Bill to Save American Horses


The Humane Society of the United States applauds U.S. Reps. Dan Burton, R-Ind., and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., for introducing H.R. 2966, the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011, a bipartisan measure that will end the export and inhumane killing of American horses for human consumption across our borders. The bill was introduced in the House with 57 original co-sponsors. “Although horse slaughter plants no longer operate in the United States, many thousands of American horses still endure the long journey to Canada and Mexico to be killed in cruel and unacceptable ways,” ...

Representative Dan Burton’s last antivaccine hurrah is scheduled for November 29
Whenever I blog about atrocities against science like the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), I’m frequently asked how just such an edifice designed to promote pseudoscience could have come to be as a full-fledged center in the National Institutes of Health. The answer is simple and boils down to woo-loving legislators. In…
The mummer’s farce that was the Congressional autism hearing last week
Last Wednesday, I took note of an “old friend” and (thankfully) soon-to-be ex-Representative from Indiana’s 5th Congressional District, organized quackery’s best friend in the U.S. House of Representatives, Dan Burton. Specifically, I noted that Rep. Burton appeared to be having his one last antivaccine hurrah in the form of a hearing about the “autism epidemic”…

The Daily Show: Hilarious segment about vaccines, not so hilariously wrong about the politics of vaccine denialism
Not surprisingly, being a guy who leans mildly left, I like The Daily Show. Jon Stewart and his writers are incredibly adept at skewering all manner of bovine excrement, be it political, scientific, or otherwise. In particular, the way Stewart and company skewered the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) for its promotion of…
