How Did I Miss This

Our Governor publicly professes his scientific ignorance,

COLUMBIA, S.C., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he believes intelligent design should be taught in his state's public school classrooms.
College of Charleston physics professor Bob Dukes and biology associate professor Robert Dillon Jr. criticized the governor for his statements. They told the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier there aren't "chinks in the armor of evolution," and Sanford's citation of the second law of thermodynamics was also incorrect.

and I don't notice it for 11 months.

Well, at least I know fully understand why he appointed a home schooling, intelligent design promoting supporter to the South Carolina Board overseeing public education

Click back to the earliest posts in my blog (Jan. and Feb. 2006) and you'll see a lot about our supposedly enlightened governor and intelligent design. It's worse than just that he holds these views - He is the one appointing these people with these views (Karen Iacovelli, Kristin Maguire) to the board.

I knew Maguire was appointed by him, and she was also a big Floyde supporter. I also suspected that this was Sanfords poisition on ID... I was just unaware that he had pubically aired his foolishness
