Now they're really grasping at straws. Instead of presenting evidence of their "intelligent design," they will try to push their creationism into the schools by force. Dare them to try one of these in Washington.

You mean the home of the Discovery Institute. Oops, that would be Seattle. Sorry.

Actually they don't have a chance here. And all they will reap ultimately in those other states is a series of lawsuits which they will lose.

Sadly I used to like the Republican Party's small government policies. Unfortunately they have let themselves become beholden to the wacko religious right. My party has abandoned me and they are seeking out idiots instead.

Yeah, I walk past that place of idiocy once in a while. I swear there are cobwebs on the door. But all the "christian science" book stores closing one by one, so there's hope we can get rid of that embarrassment too.

I'm with you on that. Those meant to be champions of small government, libertarian ideals, and freedom have sold out to religious authoritarian whackos.

Seems the only options remaining are whether you like your fascist control freaks to come at it with a maternal flavour or a paternal one.
