“help them feel good”

NASA used to be about going into space, about developing the science and technology to make that happen. No longer. Now, in the age of our first Muslim, sorry, ex-Muslim president, it is as follows, according to its administrator:

“When I became the NASA administrator, [Obama] charged me with three things,” NASA head Charles Bolden said in a recent interview with the Middle Eastern news network al-Jazeera. “One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

Now one may argue that Muslims need to feel good about themselves, what with all those suicide bombings and killings perpetrated in the name of Allah and his prophet-in-chief Mohammed. But why should an agency whose mission is to get us into space be doing this? Why, indeed, are any of our tax dollars being used for this silly purpose?

Stated differently: does any sane person think that Muslims will like us better if we do this kind of bed-wetting? Might they rather have an even lower opinion of us, as bed-wetters?

What in God’s name is wrong with this administration? How soon can we be rid of these idiots?
