Douchebag Deutsch Never Graduated From Texas A & M

UPDATE: Deutsch surrenders... lmao!

The Scientific Activist discovered that George Deutsch, the 24-year-old Bush appointee who splits time between being one of three National Public Affairs officer for NASA and being an asshat who tries to censor scientists (who - oddly enough - could run intellectual circles around him with both pocket protectors behind their backs), never graduated from Texas A&M University.

Although Deutsch did attend Texas A&M University, where he majored in journalism and was scheduled to graduate in 2003, he left in 2004 without a degree, a revelation that I was tipped off to by one of his former coworkers at A&M's student newspaper The Battalion.


The idea that NASA let a 24-year-old journalism major, with no experience in science or technology, other than writing a few articles about video games, determine what scientists were able to communicate to the public was pretty bad. The fact that he was censoring scientific information on global warming and the big bang made things more interesting, especially since he was a political appointee doing this to prevent challenges to the Bush administration’s policies.


Now, don't get me wrong here; the "big deal" is still that the kid was in no position to have been trying to censor the NASA scientists in the first place.

The humor lies in the fact that (1) he was described by The New York Times as a 2004 A&M graduate and never bothered to try to correct the public record, and that (2) one of his classmates helped rat his douchebag ass out.

George Deutsch -- I hereby dub thee: "The Vinegar and Water Boy."
