One plaster cast convinces Palin that Adam walked with dinosaurs?

Even if the cast is so badly done that people laugh when they see it?

Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska and running mate of John McCain, believes that the world is only 6000 years old.
Soon after Sarah Palin was elected mayor of the foothill town of Wasilla, Alaska, she startled a local music teacher by insisting in casual conversation that men and dinosaurs coexisted on an Earth created 6,000 years ago -- about 65 million years after scientists say most dinosaurs became extinct -- the teacher said.
...
Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks..."
Gee... if she believes that, then it would take very little to convince her that Bush and Cheney were right, that the surge worked; that leaving Iraq means defeat but victory cannot be defined; that the fundamentals of the economy are strong; that the vice president's office needs to be expanded; that habeas corpus was unnecessary; that John McCain is right no matter how many times he lies and flipflops....

um....

But she sure did well in the debates, don'cha know! You betcha!

Update: I had to include this fantastic pic posted by PZ Myers at Pharyngula!

Hey, there's nothing wrong with that cast. It represents what we know happened, so it must be right.

He who is without sin, let him stone the cast first.

Cast him who is stoned and let him sin first.

And Dcap... McCain IS a dinosaur. Some sort of TRex, with small arms and a weird grin...

let she who is stoned be blessed, but we don't need sarah palin to be one stroke from the presidency

ellroon said...

Stroke? Dear god, Palin is going to cause McCain to have a heart attack by seducing him on the bear rug in the Oval office! It's all a vast right fundamentalist wingnut conspiracy to get a rapturite into office and nuke the Middle East!

/adjusts tinfoil hat so it's tighter...
