Politicians & Candidates Getting Asked About Intelligent Design

I may be the last person to have realized this, but "intelligent design" is among many things turning out to be an awkward issue for some elected officials and political candidates: GOP candidates struggle with delicate issue of religion in schools (NW Illinois Times).

There are plenty of places -- including the 2008 presidential primaries -- where it will be fun to see candidates try and be as balanced and coherent as fictional future president Jimmy Smits. See A Third Way on Intelligent Design?

Or maybe by then the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster will have taken hold, and the whole issue will be moot.

In the meantime: Science Groups Say Kansas Can't Use Their Evolution Papers (NYT).
