That science is a bunch of malarkey

Hear ye, hear ye:  Just 47 years after Gov. George Wallace belched forth the infamous words, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” upon being sworn into office, Alabama has rightfully reclaimed the title, “most ignorant state.” For unequivocal evidence, look no further than its recent spate of political ads.

We’ve already seen Dale Peterson’s gunslingin’ mudslingin’ shit sandwich. But that’s scholarly stuff compared with this ad slamming Alabama Republican Bradley Byrne for his pagan heresy and warped views on education:

FACT:  Any individual or group—this one’s called True Republican PAC (political action committee)—who wields a belief in evolution, rational thought and a non-literal interpretation of the Bible as weapons of character assassination in the 21st century should not be allowed to vote, let alone vie for high office. The Middle Ages are over. Science is here to stay. Get used to it.

And then there’s this pearl of tolerance from the beneficiary of that last bit of slander:

I guess I can maybe understand being a tad irked about the license thing. But to make it part of your campaign platform and the basis of an ENTIRE ad for Governor of Alabama? At least Dale Peterson had the good sense to spew out so many bigoted comments at once that none could be absorbed.

Not so with Tim James. That Mr. James’s populace cares enough to vote for him based solely on his xenophobic views is remarkably tragic.

Parochialism at its finest. Outstanding.
