In yet another reminder of why I'm not a Republican, the GOP debate last night featured the question, "Do you believe in the story of creation as it is described in the Bible?"
Governor Mike Huckabee started out with a good answer saying "I can't believe that question would even be asked of someone running for president..." Unfortunately, he then decided to attempt an answer that was a clear tightrope act for someone who doesn't want to be deemed unfaithful or a lunatic. The irony is, of course, that he sounded like both.
Then McCain tried to force out some paean to creationist views that made him look like he was passing a stone.
Then Sam Brownback chimed in, and remarkably sounded like the most reasonable guy in the room.
If you wanted to make a really convincing argument against evolution, the idea that this topic continues to come up might be a good place to start.
