Moving on with Hansen

What's that? George Soros is funding Hanson? No, no, no, James Hansen, the outspoken NASA scientist who claimed Bush was trying to muzzle him. At least according to these guys:
How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"?
Doubtless the mainstream media will not be tripping over themselves to investigate whether this violates some kind of government act. Chances are many would say it's just partisan speculation... that it's not prudent to come to a conclusion about such a serious matter until all the facts are in. And, that dissent regarding conventional wisdom and speaking truth to power is patriotic. Just a hunch.

At this point in a blog post it seems customary to link back to one's own blog for previous witty and insightful pieces that now scream "told ya so". With all due respect to modesty, here it is.
