To believe in evolution you first need to have opposable thumbs

In last night's Republican debate, three of the hopefuls (Brownback, Tancredo and Huckabee) admitted that they do not believe in evolution. This admission will go down well in Preacher Cletus' church, I'm not so sure about the rest of us.

Watching dangerous fools fight for power is entertaining as well as terrifying, especially when not a one of them has an original idea between them. After more than an hour of watching these power brokers slavishly worship at the alter of Reagan I came to the conclusion that only Ron Paul is sucking from a different bottle than the others.

I also have one question. Do the 3 who sheepishly raised their hands to the evolution question, really and truly not believe in evolution or did they raise their hands simply to get the whack-o religious freak vote? To be honest, I'm not sure of the answer to that question. It not beneath a politician to lie, but this bunch of Republicans strike me as being intellectually burnt stubs.
