Oh. My. God. What next? Mark Steyn getting a beat at the Globe? Oh, wait ...
HOW SLEAZY CAN ONE HUMAN BEING POSSIBLY BE? If you really need to know where to peg Domenech on your sleaze-o-meter, this should tell you everything you need to know:
Will Saletan is normally at least evenhanded. But his offhand dismissal of the reasons for teaching Intelligent Design in public schools is full of holes. He can't just dismiss intelligent design as "empy" or "full of lies or dogma," when no less prominent an evolutionist than Stephen Jay Gould has lent weight to the theories of Michael Behe and his brethren.
Really? He has? That's kind of a surprising development. So if we follow that link referring to Gould, surely we'll get to a piece in which Gould himself is taking this position, right? Right?
What we find is an article by someone else claiming that Stephen Jay Gould is "bad for evolution" which is, as I'm sure you can appreciate, not quite the same thing.
Where I come from, we call that being a dishonest, sleazy, unprincipled hack. Where Domenech comes from, I imagine they call it being a Republican.
DAMN IT. I swear, I wrote this piece before I popped over to Pharyngula to see that PZ Myers was all over this like Jonah Goldberg on a box of Krispy Kremes.
SNICKER. Everybody's taking a whack at the boy moron.
