I’ve done it and (on my father’s suggestion, actually) put my knowledge of evolution controversies to “use” and written something for a political website about Sarah Palin. It goes a little something like this:
When John McCain announced his intention to make a freshman — and female — Alaska Governor the next vice president on the eve of the Republican convention, the liberal media conspiracy went predictably haywire. The litany of revelations about Sarah Palin only grows as time goes on. And though it has been overshadowed by teenage pregnancies and doctored photographs, one question has got the lattes shaking in a great many progressive hands: is Sarah Palin a creationist?
I’m not sure how much wisdom I’ve added to the political debate, but I certainly have, in my little way, added to the frenzy about this woman. See for yourself over on AlterNet.
