Watch this first. A Republican strategist speaks the truth, and not even on accident! Which is a rare occasion in itself...

|Weathering Fights - Science: What's It Up To?|
Then watch this. What does Michelle Bachmann think about intelligent design in the classroom? Should it be taught as science along side evolution in our public schools? I think I'll let her answer!
It's almost as if Michelle Bachmann is doing comedy routine. Except it would be funny if it wasn't for the pesky fact that Bachmann wants a theocracy. You know, one of those places where the facts are up to debate. Where people can choose what's right and what's wrong. Where traditional Jesus-y thinking rules the day. But only if you're one of those good, Republican, conservative, Jesus lovers. Not if you're some left wing, progressive, socialist Christians. Oh no, then you're even more disturbed than those science-y types.
Even if you are let down by Barack Obama, do you really want a Republican President who believes this kind of idea?
Isn't choice great! It's the "American Way"! Yay Freedom!*
"What is the point of teaching children facts if it only confuses them? It should be up to the American people to decide what's true! Doesn't that make common sense?"
*((The "American Way" and freedom of choice only applies to white males. Certain side effects may occur if you are a woman, African-American, brown skinned immigrant, liberal, senior citizen, active soldier, veteran, child, Jew, Muslim, Atheist, homosexual, student, home-owner, homeless, or union member. Side effects may include imposed religious values in your personal life, lack of reproductive choice, restrictions of voting rights, and attacks on personal character. The "American Way" is trademarked by the GOP and represents conservative, white, "traditional" values.))

p.s. Hat-tip to John Amato and CrooksandLiars where this clip of Bachmann was posted. If anyone can help me with getting the full length clip from CrooksandLiars embedded into my blog that was great. Otherwise you'll have to click the link to view it.
