After the 8 year parade of asshattery that marked President Bush's appointments, I'm thrilled to see some weapons-grade brains riding the Obama Train to D.C.
Like this guy, Dr. Steven Chu. Our soon-to-be new Secretery of Energy. A bona-fide, bad ass Nobel Prize winning physicist. That's right, a phucking physicist. In fact, he is a Professor of Physics and Molecular and Cellular Biology at Berkeley.
And hey, if Obama ever needs to know about three-dimensional viscous confinement and cooling of atoms by resonance radiation pressure, he's got the guy.
