Stupid Is as Stupid Does

Ack! I meant to blog about this back when it happened but forgot. Ed Brayton reminded me. Better yet, he pointed to the blog of Lamar White, Jr., who has the whole story.

Bobby Jindal admitted that the oxymoronic Louisiana Science Education Act is really intended, as understood by the man who signed it into law as Governor, to promote the teaching of creationism.

Look beginning at about 10:00. Here's a transcript from White:
Jindal: "We have what's called the Science Education Act, that says if a teacher wants to supplement those materials, if the school board's OK with that, if the State school board's OK with that, they can supplement those materials.

"Bottom line, at the end of the day, we want our kids to be exposed to the best facts. Let's teach them about the Big Bang theory. Let's teach them about evolution. Let's teach them….

"I've got no problem if a school board, a local school board, says we want to teach our kids about creationism, that some people have these beliefs as well.

"Let's teach them about intelligent design
Teach them about ID? Heaven [cough] forfend! ... according to the Discoveryless Institute!

White has the DI's desperate attempt to spin Jindal's admission under the appropriate title "The Discovery Institute Thinks Americans Are Stupid."

Naturally, Casey Lumpkin is involved, not to mention outright lies.
