The U.S. Supreme Court, Samuel Alito and Intelligent Design.

From over at Daily Kos, there's a comment that Republican Senator and Official GOP Cat Killer Bill Frist is denying Democrats the chance to speak on the floor of the Senate.

Some enterprising Democrat should start collecting examples of this kind of suppression and use it the next time some right-wing dumbfuck suggests that it's reasonable to teach Intelligent Design because, you know, it's only fair that students get to hear "both sides."

Don't make me have to explain this, OK?

I just cannot understand it -- how can anyone watch the Republicans in action, and still believe in "intelligent design" anyway?

Given the results of the election, how long before the bible wallopers in Canada feel sufficiently emboldened to start trying to get their "intelligent design" fantasies onto school science curriculms?

oh and to add a quick blogwhore, the second installment of the post election series "rural-urban split - the last ride of red deer" is now ready to read on the woodshed http://kevinswoodshed.blogspot.com/
