Quotes for the day -- evolution schmevolution

"All that stuff I was taught about evolution, embryology, the Big Bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of hell. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Rep Paul Broun (R-Georgia)

"Well, I've taken a look at both sides of the thing. And it seems to me that evolution takes a tremendous amount of faith.  To have all of a sudden all of the different things that have to be lined up, to create something as sophisticated as life, it takes a lot of faith. I don’t see it as even as a matter of science, because I don’t know if you can prove one or the other."

Rep. Todd "legitimate rape" Akin (R-Missouri)

Both of these guys are on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, which is the kind of thing that happens when we let the Republicans get a majority.

"[This]is the kind of thing that happens when we let the Republicans get a majority."

And it's why people need to quit complaining, get off their lazy posteriors and volunteer, vote and drag everyone along they can.

As the immortal Bugs liked to say, "That's not all, folks!" Let's not forget Republicans put Michelle Bachmann on the House Intelligence Committee and made Virginia Foxx chairwoman of the Higher Education and Workforce Training Subcommittee. She's the one who said she has little tolerance for students who go deep in debt. As if college students typically go deep in debt by choice.
