A Candidate for the Texas Education Board?

by TFN

“Evolution is a myth. . . . Why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

No, that’s not Ken “Dog-Cat/Cat-Rat” Mercer, the Republican State Board of Education member from San Antonio who thinks evidence against evolution is the fact that dog-cat and cat-rat mutants aren’t roaming the earth. The quote above comes from Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee and religious-right favorite in the U.S. Senate race in Delaware. (h/t ThinkProgress)

As show how Bill Maher notes in the clip, O’Donnell seems to think evolutionary science is based on the notion that, if you’re paying really, really close attention, you can watch monkeys become humans right before your eyes. O’Donnell would be a good fit on the current State Board of Education in Texas, yes?
