And so, Bob Costas, Mr. Clean Sports Announcer, has decided to use his sports show on HBO as a front piece to attack Bush, and Bush's supporters. How? By slamming Bush's comments about Intelligent Design.
Bob made an off hand comment about it during the 'round table' with a couple of sports guys, like Charles Barkley, plus a certain Jon Stewart, a comedian. Stewart said that kids should be taught both sides of the steriod story as well. That steriods are bad for you and so on, but the other side is take as many steriods as you want for it as harmless as 'apple juice'.
And the background laughter of the show technicians could be heard as they joined in the laughter of the round table.
So, the demographic of this show is young. And the intent is plain: condemn Bush, but especially make fun of folks who question Evolution by even thinking about the ID arguements, using 'cool people' like Stewart, who it must be said served as Bob's foil.
Well, to Bob, I have this to say: you might consider sticking to sports, instead of being pimped by your handlers at HBO who want to under the radar get into the Evolution ID debate (which has what? pray tell, to do with sports?).
And to Mr. Stewart, I only have this comment ... you wish the President's loyalty wasn't 'blind'. To you Jon, I suggest you read John Chapter 9 ... and reconsider if you know what the word blind means....
And I'm guessing Tressell will still be wearing his WWJD wristband.
This is not urgent, but a ping to the creationist ping list might be in order. For the truth must be this:
The ID debate is fundamentally winning at the grass roots level if sports shows on HBO is attacking Bush over his comments about it.
Slowly, we're gaining....
I'm shocked, shocked!
Slowly, we're gaining....
... weight. All you have to do now is come up with a scientific theory and you might start making progress.
A joke on a sports show isn't the epic battle of Creationism vs. Evolution. Sheesh, get a thicker skin and chill a little, you'll have a cornonary if you get worked up over every silly thing Jon Stewart says.
"People making fun of silly ideas?
I'm shocked, shocked!"
Some ideas are just crying out to be made fun of....
