Intelligent (Re) Design

All eight members of the PA school board that stuck "intelligent design" nonsense into the curriculum lost their seat.

Combine that with a new Dem. governor of VA (even with President Job campaigning for the Republican guy), plus a few other subtle and not so subtle defeat,s and perhaps the tide could finally be turning. Now, knowing this country, it probably won't turn too far, but since so many arguments of the day are of the polarized pro/con variety, the best anyone who disagrees can do is just say no and vote the bums out.

Oh, also, a huge percentage of Americans have deemed Libby's indictment "important". That means any future pardon may be deemed important as well, to equally detrimental effect. We're a far cry from rioting in the streets, but all this stuff is going down with three more years of Job to go. At the rate we're going, every last optimist or innocent left in America will be turned off traditional vite-and-debate politics forever. And that's when the riots start.

The VA gubernatorial race was really f--ked up. I think the last guv'ner was a Democrat, too. But we were remarking how much the campaign resembled Silent Bob's smear job on Quimby in an early season of the Simpsons -- right down to this high-larious ad Kilgore ran accusing Tim Kaine of being a "flip-flopper," complete with the image of a young girl bouncing on a trampoline. That state sucks.

Ooops, I meant "Sideshow Bob." Though "Silent Bob" is funny, too.
