Wyoming, which is a pretty stupid state sometimes, although you don’t hear about it too often because almost no one lives there, has a candidate for governor who
- … wants teachers to be required to teach creationism. “I think it is as valuable a theory as any other theory.”
- … is opposed to abortion even in the context of rape.
- … in what the Casper Star-Tribune called “A momumental display of bad judgement” he advocated for leniency for his friend Ty in a rape case. Ry is now serving 60 years in the pen for raping a Casper woman in her home.
In a poll conducted nearly two weeks ago, Micheli, who claims to be a teabagger but is running as a Republican (which makes sense because almost all remaining Republicans are teabaggers), was running a solid fourth within his party. Rita Meyer and Matt Mead are at the head of the GOP pack, and the GOP is widely predicted to be in the lead in this particular race.
I do not know what the other candidate’s positions are in relation to science education.
