Choose Your Favorite Scientific Ethics Cartoon

Jul 31 2008 Published by under Art & Photography, Ethics, Humor, Politics

Everyone knows that the White House has been forcing scientists to only talk about research that conforms with GW's agenda, and the political cartoonists have been busily committing these shameful lies to paper in a form that we all can appreciate. One of those cartoons is pictured above. Thanks to a blog pal of mine, now is your opportunity to choose your favorite cartoon in the Union for Concerned Scientists' Scientific Integrity Editorial Cartoon Contest. They have 12 cartoons there for you to choose between -- good luck! I am still trying to figure out which one I want to vote for (the one pictured above is great, except there are no female scientists included -- um, hello?!?). If you've chosen your favorite, I'd sure appreciate hearing which one it was and why you chose it!
