Religion and Politics -- 2: John McCain

This from a New York Times article on the Democrats' favorite Republican, likely presidential candidate John McCain:

He said schools should be allowed to offer "intelligent design" courses as an alternative to evolution.

And perhaps levitation courses as an alternative to gravity?

I'm glad McCain is swinging to the right to appease the Republican base.  His attempts to shill himself as a moderate were turning my stomach thanks to the number of seemingly politically savvy people I know that were falling for it.

John McCain still says we should have won the Vietnam War. Fly over the country and sitting in a cell did nothing to inform him of the larger reality of Vietnam. And he evidentally has not studied that war after the fact.

To be so blind about the war he was actually in can only lead one to believe he has the same bad grip on the obvious in the Middle East.

John is my Senator. Lucky me.
