In the wake of Chris Mooney's 
The Republican War on Science
The Nation, and Slate report that 
only 6% of scientists identify with the GOP, 
leading Mother Jones to conclude:
Of course scientists are hostile toward Republicans. As far as they're concerned, Republicans are troglodytes who don't believe in evolution, don't believe in climate change, want to ban stem cell research, and don't want to fund the NSF. They'd be crazy not to be hostile toward Republicans.
To frame a Republican outreach campaign aimed at halting the implosion of bipartisanship these liberal journals celebrate lament, The American Association for the Advancement of Science has decided to invoke the science popularizers who've been around the longest, and whom conservative readers should therefore trust the most -- J. D. Bernal and J.B.S. Haldane: 

America's largest science organization has also decided to demonstrate its bipartisan bons fides by putting aside the partisan biotech protocols and politicized cell line sources of the past. 

Henceforth, the Editors of Science will now provide prospective molecular bio authors with their choice of sequenced DNA from noted venture capitalist Craig Venter,  or stem cells Steve Gould, whose daddy raised him to be a Marxist
