Bad Astronomy Update: Appointee is as dumb as suspected

So, here's a quick update on this. It seems that I was not the only one who pondered possible reasons for this person's stupidity as several people have revelled in some investigative journalism. Their discoveries were not so surprising, and this kid has resigned from office.

George C. Deutsch, the young presidential appointee at NASA who told public affairs workers to limit reporters’ access to a top climate scientist and told a Web designer to add the word “theory” at every mention of the Big Bang, resigned yesterday, agency officials said.

Mr. Deutsch’s resignation came on the same day that officials at Texas A&M University confirmed that he did not graduate from there, as his résumé on file at the agency asserted."
