Time magazine found Walker’s old science teacher–Ann Serpe–from high school to solve the evolution puzzle surrounding him. He was said to be accepting of all the lessons taught to him, according to Serpe (via Time):
Huh? There is no evolution puzzle surrounding Walker. He has no more information than the average well-read person, and in the age of ISIS, evolution is really only of interest to those of us who were already interested years or decades ago.
By contrast, as Trotsky put it, you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.
All I can say is that some news outlets are really obsessing over this evolution business that has little to do with someone’s qualifications as president. There are so many more issues of importance that the next president needs to address; rehashing the Scopes Monkey Trial isn’t one of them–and Scott Walker, were he to become president, wouldn’t dabble with making the creationism-evolution debate his primary action item as the leader of the free world. It’s absurd. If the media is willing to ask old high school faculty about Walker, we should be prepared for more of this nonsense.
I’m way behind keeping up with all the science media releases that demonstrate beyond any reasonable doubt that what the pop media dimwits understand to be “evolution” is currently a shambles, frequently detonated by new findings.
Yes, a clearer picture of evolution will emerge, but not the one the dimwits expect—and it really has nothing to do with Scott Walker, who did not go into science for a living.
I just hope the fellow has enough sense not to get sucker punched like so many before him. They will only use whatever he, a lay person, says to spread misinformation about him, in addition to the misinformation they spread about evolution.

Like we said before: Why does anyone listen to this kind of media any more? Gotta lot of free time on your hands? A note in your file? Laid off? Sidelined for promotion? Put out to pasture?
