On Friday, Michele Bachmann (R-MN) — incredibly, a Presidential front-runner for the Republicans — said this:
I support intelligent design […] What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide. I don’t think it’s a good idea for government to come down on one side of scientific issue or another, when there is reasonable doubt on both sides.

Why is that incredible? Most Americans, in poll after poll, find Darwinism unbelievable. So they should fund it? Sponsor persecutions on its behalf?

Note: UD News can’t help the fact that an entire field in science is having a collective nervous breakdown about the idea that anyone would question their total devotion to a little old Beard in the 19th century. Stuff happens.

I live in Texas. I'd vote for Perry for President only if it was him or Obama, but believe me, you'd rather have Bachman, Palin or Cain. Perry is a career politician, started out as a Democrat, and is a card-carrying RINO if ever there was one. There's a reason the media beats the drum for Romney, Huntsman, & Perry, and why they demonize, ignore, and ridicule Bachman, Palin, & Cain: it's because those three are the real deal. William J.

I'm Canadian and don't see women or ethnics as having proved themselves generally to be in the most prestiges or powerful positions pound for pound with American Men. If she is worthy then more power too her. Yet having someone like this say ID etc should be okay in the classroom is a great development. Its fantastic. It demonstrates how important origin issues have become when not only is it front news but its not seen as somthing to run from. I understand about 70% of Yanks accept public schools teaching both sides however these political types usually keep quiet about these things. Its a sign of the times and the growing dis satisfaction of many Americans with the long night of evolutionary propaganda. Time has come today. Its time to address why there is a legal prohibition against teaching or discovering the truth on common heritages of origins. This founded on claimed anti creationist motivations of the early Yankee and Southern PROTESTANT Americans. Creationists should make a big noise about this candidate even if uninterested in her candidacy or politics generally. She said a brave and truthful statement. Perhaps these are the qualities of a true President of a great but troubled nation. Robert Byers
Former Utah governor and former ambassador to China and Singapore, Jon Huntsman announced his bid today. I wonder where he stands on the issue of science education. He's a Mormon, so I imagine that he would be ID friendly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Huntsman,_Jr. CannuckianYankee
Bachmann is the strongest Republican candidate...until Rick Perry decides to run. It's almost a shame. I think Bachmann would be a great President, but Perry will beat her. I'd love to see the first female President be a Republican. That would shut up the libs for a long time. But alas, it is not to be. tragic mishap
