Bush backs teaching 'intelligent design'

Because that's exactly what American kids need to learn in this era of cutthroat competition for jobs? Nope, Bush has a downright liberal reason why schoolsshould teach their students the Divine Plan:


"I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said. "You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes." [LINK]
Ah, diversity! How can any right-thinking progressive argue with that. Except if we're really going to jump on the diversity bandwagon, I insist we include at least one of the Hindu creation myths. For the children's sake, we can skip the more colorful incest version and go with the giant golden egg.
