Michael Medved resents the question about evolution

That the Republican presidential candidates had to answer. Trifecta of New Pairodimes takes him apart. Trifecta's responses are italized:
In the midst of the fierce campaign for the Presidential nomination, why did the Republican candidates choose to make an issue of the theory of evolution? In truth, none of the candidates ever emphasized this dispute, until Chris Matthews of MSNBC asked the ten contenders in the first debate if any of them rejected Darwin.

Our batshit insane candidates wanted to paper over their views that Jesus rode on a brontosaurus when a donkey wasn't available. Leave it to the liberal media to make them talk about their views.

When three candidates – Huckabee, Brownback and Tancredo – duly raised their hands, the media began focusing on creationism vs. intelligent design vs. evolution, as if the President of the United States got to make curriculum decisions for every local school board in the country.

No, the President gets to appoint 24 year old snot nosed kids to NASA to edit scientists work that mention things such as global warming, and to suggest that they push intelligent design. God don't make junk, and since we are created in his image, it's unpossible for us to foul the air with toxic crap.
Which brings me to another series of questions I'd like to ask these candidates:

If you don't believe in evolution, does that mean you believe the world is only 6 thousand years old?

Or do you believe that we've always been what we are today, but the world does evolve?

If you don't believe in evolution, do you believe in continental drift and plate tectonics?

Do you believe the stars are billions of years old?

If you don't believe in these things, do you believe in science? Facts?

Would you support space exploration?

The Hubble?

The International Space Station?

If you don't believe in evolution, can science teach us anything?

If you don't believe in evolution, and don't believe in the facts that science teaches us, do you believe in the Rapture?

Would you assist the Second Coming if you could?

Just a few questions to hone in on what would really drive a Republican president who doesn't believe in evolution.

I would also check to see if each of them had opposable thumbs.

And a belly button....


And a brain.

Don't a lot of other primates have opposable thumbs? Oh, wait; a lot of other primates would be preferable as president to most of these nut-case H. 'sapiens'...

But really: I agree that if a candidate manifests any serious reservations about governing based on best available scientific results, that candidate should be immediately dropped from consideration by all thinking voters.

(That reminds me of Adlai Stevenson's famous retort to the woman who said that every thinking person would vote for him. Sigh.)

Hiya, secret. Would you please stop talking and go ahead and activate your secret rapture, please? We could do with a few less people on the planet and there are several million willing to leave.

And make sure Bush and Cheney are on the list, thanks.

Your wish is my command! Shortly I will remove billions!

Wow! Can you also fix Afghanistan and Iraq, give us pollution-free energy sources and make sure those of us who are left are happy? If you're not too busy, that is.

Mapaghimagsik, it must be a secretly double super duper layered secret thingie where he can talk about it but it still is secret. Who am I to argue with somebody with green skin and red eyes?
