Mike the Mad Biologist

The NY Times editors comment on Louisiana’s latest creationist idiocy, supported by Republican governor Bobby Jindal (italics mine):

As a biology major at Brown University, Mr. Jindal must know that evolution is the unchallenged central organizing principle for modern biology. As a rising star on the conservative right, mentioned as a possible running mate for John McCain, Mr. Jindal may have more than science on his mind.

I think I mentioned that once or twice.

But the NY Times is wrong in one regard. Jindal isn’t doing this because he’s an opportunist, but because he’s nuts: this is a guy who thought an exorcism cured cancer.

    Oh my god- Jindal and I are graduates from the same alma mater… same major, in fact.

    I think Bobby Jindal MUST have cheated!
