Shit. Even though I knew it was coming. Just shit.

Perry is doing his best to suck in the crazy base vote, and this pick just helps him out. Gods above there are times I really wish we could afford to move out of Texas.

I feel sorry for you, but I feel more sorry for the kids who would probably get a piss-poor education in science.  Let's pray that a sex scandal emerges -- preferably a gay one -- because that seems to be one of the only ways to oust these asshats.

I have told Randall before that I am SO glad I went to high school when I did. This sort of crap hadn't gotten started here when I graduated in 81. It's embarrassing now. Really.

Unless something has changed, this will not give the fundies the votes they need to actually do anything. As I recall, the last chairman was a fundie who tried to push the "Fundie Science" agenda and lacked the votes to do it.  This guy does sound more loony, however.

The worst part is she's the more LIBERAL choice of the two Perry was considering.  The other is one of people who think Obama wasn't born in the US and isn't a US citizen among other things.

God save me from "birthers." Someone starts with that crap and I just walk away. There's no hope for any meaningful discussion with people like that.
