(Newser) Strong evidence of water on Mars is either an amazing discovery or a leftist plot, depending on whether you're talking to NASA scientists or Rush Limbaugh. On his radio show yesterday, the latter said that while he's a "big time" science guy, he's not buying the latest announcement because "NASA has been corrupted by the current regime" and he believes the discovery "is somehow going to find its way into a technique to advance the leftist agenda," Politico reports.

Limbaugh said that since NASA has been "making up" temperature data for years, "lying and making up false charts and so forth," he suspects it's making up the Mars news as well, probably for "something to do with global warming." "Maybe there was once an advanced civilization. If they say they found flowing water, next they're going to find a graveyard," he said, per Media Matters. (Read more Rush Limbaugh stories.)
