And Huntsman is right -- eventually, the GOP's disavowal of science will be bad news not just for the nation but for its own electoral prospects. Huntsman thinks this will be the case this election cycle -- that the GOP might nominate Bachmann or Perry, only to find that the moderate public is scared off by their disbelief in evolution and their insistence that climate change is a nefarious hoax. This could indeed happen. In fact, Democratic strategists are praying for such a scenario. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to help the prospects of the lone Republican who's willing to talk straight about science -- the far-right Tea Party will be driving votes in the Republican primary, and they're rejecting Huntsman as wholly as they reject climate science. But mark his words -- denying science is a bad move any way you cut it.
