KS people want to be liked and recognized by the rest of the country: Sam Brownback. I am sure this conservative will be dumped by these liberal school board members from the nation. He sounds like someone with backbone.

...member of the Kansas school board who supported its efforts against the teaching of evolution.


Whoa there! IIRC the issue was stating that evolution was a theory while teaching it.

Is the argument against him so weak that they must resort to lies?

The candidate is Kenneth R. Willard, a Kansas Republican who voted with the conservative majority in 2005 when the school board changed the state’s science standards to allow inclusion of intelligent design, an ideological cousin of creationism. Voters later replaced that majority, but Mr. Willard, an insurance executive from Hutchinson, retained his seat. If he becomes president-elect of the national group, he will take office in January 2009.

And based on the court decision he helped bring about, he will be powerless to push his anti-science agenda if he does get elected.

"We don't do quagmires." - Donald Rumsfeld

"We don't do the supernatural." - the natural science community

"We insist you do the supernatural." - the Biblical literalist community to the natural science community

Good book on the Kansas and Pennsylvania cases just out, called Monkey Girl, by Edward Humes. Another recent book out on the Pennsylvania case is called Forty Days and Forty Nights, I don't recall the author. Both worth reading.
