Da doo Ron Ron....

Politics, below the fold.

Via PZ Myers, we have Ron Paul's answer to the shocking question, "Do you believe in evolution?" (We'll just set aside the notion that one can "believe in" evolution, kinda like how one "believes in" Santa Claus.)

I'm not surprised at all to hear Paul say "I don't accept it, it's just a theory". No surprise there whatsoever. But what did catch my ear is his opening, where he says that it's inappropriate to even ask the question in the first place.

Well, Mr. Paul, I like my Presidents to not be nitwits who disrespect science. Which is yet another reason why no Republican has ever won my vote for President. (Or for anything, really.)
