McCain to deliver keynote at creationist gathering
How low can The Tool go? Apparently there is no end to his pandering; he really, really, really wants to sit in Chimpy’s chair. (Think Progress):
…on February 23, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will be the keynote speaker for the most prominent creationism advocacy group in the country. The Discovery Institute, a religious right think-tank, is well-known for its strong opposition to evolutionary biology and its advocacy for “intelligent design.” The institute’s main financial backer, savings and loan heir Howard Ahmanson, spent 20 years on the board of the Chalcedon Foundation, “a theocratic outfit that advocates the replacement of American civil law with biblical law.”
TP also notes that McCain has been for creationism and against it — flip-flopperama. In 2005 he said that intelligent design should be taught in schools, but last year he stated that ID didn’t belong in science classrooms.
