Overview

The Bush-Cheney administration clamed to be pro-science, and often made gestures to that effect, but generally acted on a deeply anti-scientific agenda – of which their support of evangelism was just a facet. (Even their outward support of evangelism was more of a tool towards political ends than a reflection of actual beliefs by anyone in the administration.)

Bush himself went on record in support of intelligent design, an anti-scientific theory thinly clothed in scientific terminology.

This contradictory stance is also part of a consistent pattern of hypocrisy within the administration.
