Science, communism, and the president

Scientists are arguing that W. is bending studies to his will and that he is hurting scientific progress. A comparison to 1930's Soviet Russia is drawn:

"Starting in the 1930s, the Soviets spurned genetics in favor of Lysenkoism, a fraudulent theory of heredity inspired by Communist ideology. Doing so crippled agriculture in the U.S.S.R. for decades. You would think that bad precedent would have taught President George W. Bush something. But perhaps he is no better at history than at science."
