Arggh!

Why?  Please tell me why we are so freaking stupid?

A wack job, religious nut who thinks the earth is 6000 years old is now chairwoman of the Arizona senate education panel?   “As chairwoman, she will control which legislative education proposals succeed and which ones die.”

What’s worse is that this is not an isolated occurrence.

If someone wants to believe the earth is 6000 years old and created by god, go for it.  I think you’re an idiot and will make fun of you without mercy, but you have every right to believe whatever you want.  BUT, don’t you dare teach that shit in our public schools!  And you should immediately be disqualified from having any influence on what is taught in public schools.  Come on now!  There are very few issues that get my blood boiling as much as willful ignorance.  As far as I’m concerned, teaching “creationism” is tantamount to child abuse.  It’s like we’re going backward, as a society, instead of forward.  How in the world has it ever come to this?
