design some intelligence

So, our great leader, Prezdint Dark W. Helmet, has finally come out in support of the teaching of "intelligent design" to the impressionable youth of America. No big surprise, really. Remember, this is the man that said "the jury's still out" on evolution. Of course, this is also the man who is demonstrably illiterate, insular, bigoted, arrogant, and - almost always wrong.

Before the 2000 elections, I had noticed that this man had destroyed every business venture and employment opportunity he had been given, and was repeatedly bailed out and promoted out of his positions of incompetence by his father and his father's friends and associates. It would seem that now he wants to do the same thing to the United States' educational system.

As professor of astronomy at my local college, I am personally outraged that this kind of stupidity is permitted to be aired unchallenged by the "most powerful man in the world," but I see a silver lining.

Bush is going to destroy the Republican party exactly the same way he destroyed all of the other business ventures he has been involved in, and three years from now, and possibly even twenty-three years from now, the Republicans are going to operate under a cloud of doubt and distrust that will seriously impair their ability to do further damage to this great country.

Now all we have to do is survive the next three years...
