Clinton: "I think that I worked hard on the sequencing of the human genome. We finished it when I was president."

Darn, I thought Al Gore solved the sequencing of the human genome right after he finished inventing the Internet!

It is entirely unrealistic to expect a Rhodes Scholar to know high school biology when he is preoccupied with such basic questions as the meaning of "is."

I was perhaps more surprised that Dr. Gupta just let it slide without correction (at least in the part of the interview I saw.) Shouldn't a medical doctor and science correspondent make sure glaring errors like that are clarified before being broadcast to the public? The media will give this as much airplay as they gave Palin's "stupid mistakes", right?

Great post, Carl. It's amazing to me that someone who is supposed to be so intelligent can be so incredibly ignorant. Come on, if someone like me who has only a B.A. in English can understand (in layman's terms, anyway) what is involved in fertilization and in embryonic stem cell research (and the difference between the two), then anyone of average intelligence ought to be able to understand it.

Charles, I just about "busted a gut" laughing at your comment. Thanks for making my day!
