"I Believe in Science" Should Not Be a Showstopper (Zack Kopplin, 7/29/16, Slate)

Thirty minutes into Hillary Clinton's speech accepting the Democratic Party's nomination for president, she made a simple admission that, in 2016, should not be remarkable but somehow was. "And, I believe in science!" she exclaimed. And then she laughed uncomfortably as the crowd applauded, perhaps uncomfortable themselves.

This is bizarre, because in 2016, stating a belief in science should not be a line in a presidential candidate's speech.

She was, of course, speaking to people who demand we stop vaccinating children and start labeling GMO foods.
