Virginia surpasses Texas in supercomputer race

I would consider this to be a form of political correctness – The University of Texas had to buy their supercomputer from nearby Dell, lest they incur the wrath of Sir Michael. In doing so, they have squandered $38 million dollars of taxpayer money. Meanwhile, the Virginians spend only $5 million, get more processors, and at least double to triple the computational power of the Texas supercomputer.

So you see, political correctness is not limited to liberals and Democrats. The only difference is that when done by conservatives, lots more money is wasted, usually taken from those who can least afford it.
