Ding-Dong Senate Bill 320 is dead!

Just received word (literally, 5 minutes ago) Senate Bill 320 was killed in committee! This required several ‘nay’ votes from Republicans, so thank you to those brave souls.

SUCK IT, IDiots!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    All praise the Global Darwinist Conspiracy™!!!

    In celebration, here is Ben Stein’s character getting killed and vivisected on an episode of Tales from the Crypt. Seriously – fast forward to 3:05. Note the name of the cadaver, too.

    Ah, I liked him better as a game show host.

    Congratulations to you and OK.

    BTW That Irish fella John Lynch packs one HELL of a punch! Maybe you could ask him for a picture wearing a cape? :)

    I think we need to raise some money to send him to a few more states though – I am sure he’ll like Mardi Gras. Suck on that Gov Jindal.

    See my comment on John Lynch’s blog for a little more detail on this defeat (so far) of SB 320.

    Thank you, thank you, all!

    Yes, the Darwinian Pressure Group, Delta Pi Gamma, takes full credit for the defeat of
    SB 320. We threatened to withhold funding for Doc Bill’s Stadium and Tire Emporium there in Norman, a multi-million dollar project that would keep hundreds of creationists in 3.2 beer for a decade. Now, the project will continue, contingent on earmark money from the Stimulus Package.

    We’ll be awaiting our check so we can proceed with the groundbreaking ceremony.

    Re Daniel

    Joshua of Nazareth doesn’t appreciate fucking assholes like Mr. Daniel.

    It certainly helped that one of the Republicans in that committee was the former president of Oklahoma State University.

    Watch out for goram fraking amendments that some smegheads might add to some other bills.

    Why has no one challenged the Louisiana version yet in court?
    Maybe ID creationism can get its final legal Waterloo in Louisiana just like YECs did two decades ago.

    Congratulations to the rational minority in Okla-by-god-homa!

    I live in Texas, where our state board of education chairman is an idiot, and where our governor is likewise a complete dumbass. I feel your pain, but tonight I feel your happiness that there is a faint glimmer of hope in that corridor of ignorance and stupidity known as the bible belt.

    It wasn’t amended to include parts of the academic fraud bill, was it? And didn’t Gov. Henry veto this bill last time?
