Apparently, Commander Chimpy is a big fan of the notion of presenting both sides of the argument, of academic fairness, of showing students all the scientific alternatives:
President Bush said Monday he believes schools should discuss "intelligent design" alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life...
"I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said. "You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes."
Sadly, that open-minded academic fairness appears to have its limits:
The Administration’s political interference with science has led to misleading statements by the President, inaccurate responses to Congress, altered web sites, suppressed agency reports, erroneous international communications, and the gagging of scientists. The subjects involved span a broad range, but they share a common attribute: the beneficiaries of the scientific distortions are important supporters of the President, including social conservatives and powerful industry groups.
George Bush: champion of situational academics.
