President Bush has come out in favor of teaching “intelligent design” — the new euphemism for creationism — alongside evolution in our public schools.  When asked about it by reporters, Dubya said, “People should learn different ideas.”  So I guess this is when he announces the cancellation of the government-mandated abstinence-only method of sex education in those same schools, because that limits the “ideas.”

Of course, that won’t happen, because in the current climate, “different ideas” means “my own faith-based opinion that has absolutely no scientific basis whatsoever.”  I can’t wait until some kid fails a math test because he thinks the square root of 121 is 13, but defends his answer as a “different idea.”
