God May Not Want the Credit

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.

Sam Brownback? Reasonable? Surely you jest.

I know, it pretty clearly describes the ridiculousness of the situation.
