Two simple clicks on the MSNBC.com map of "Hot-button races in key states" reveals this happy little juxtaposition from last night's voting:
Voters ousted eight GOP school board members who backed a controversial policy to introduce high school students to “intelligent design,” replacing them with a slate of Democratic candidates opposed to the requirement, which critics said promoted a form of creationism.
Texans approved a "constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."
Ahhhh, yes: 2006 is riiiight around the corner. The place still wreaks of 1006. You know I've bitched and moaned about the Democratic Party becoming the Republican Party under Clinton, which moved the Republican Party into fascism under Monkey. Turns out I was wrong to bitch and moan because without any competition, the neoconartists are crumbling under the weight of their own hubris. When sociopaths have no one left to kill, they must turn on each other.
This ain't gonna be pretty, folks, but I'll take the inevitable anarchy that comes with the fall of Empire over a dictatorship that seeks to preserve it. Meanwhile, I showed this Pennsylvania/Texas thing to my friend Ron via instant messenger. Please enjoy the conversation that followed:
What the fuck is intelligent design?
So then I says to him, I says:
It's the "theory" that so many things in the universe are complicated that there must be a designer. It's what the Christian fundamentalists want to replace evolution in schools.
Why is it that Rabbis and other religious leaders don't support that? Hmmmm...Hey! I'll bet it's Christian dogma disguised as scientific debate!
No fucking way. What kind of dumb shit is that? A designer; did someone just finish watching the matrix trilogy?
