Paul Broun or someone who has been dead for over a century: which one has a better grasp of reality?
OK, I'll vote for Darwin.

DeaH: Dancin_In_Anson: It will be interesting to see the Boortz hater's take on this.

I don't hate Boortz because I really don't know anything about him. That said, Boortz seems to want to guarantee that Broun stays in office. How many of Broun's base are going to write in Darwin? Wouldn't that be something a less-enthusiastic voter for the other guy would do? So, Boorts actions would siphon votes away from Broun's opponent, thereby ensuring that Broun (and his stupidity) continues to affect the rest of the nation. So, while I can't hate Boortz (not knowing of him), I don't have a very high opinion of his intelligence. Boortz either wants Broun to stay in office (which is dumb), or Boortz would like Broun to lose his office and thinks this is the way to do it (which is dumb).

As I understand it, Broun is currently running unopposed.

How do you get a medical degree without understanding that evolution underlies the principles of all the biological sciences?

Doctors are like "engineers" of biology.

They don't need to really get or accept the scientific method to use the tools that were developed by it.

I think of them like auto mechanics. You don't have to get or accept thermodynamics, friction, applied force or any of the physical laws behind them to change a pair of brake pads.

today on the politics tab we have a right winger who believes in creationism who is advocating an increase in progressive taxation and a right winger who believes in evolution who advocates for fairtax flat taxes, who is more retarded?

It's truly amazing how quickly you managed to figure a way to get whiny about this. No one even had to give you a reason. Now, that's bootstrappy.
