A Potpourri of Randomness

A number of things have caught my attention recently, but none of them have had enough to make me write about them individually.

[Education and Evolution]:

While Kansas has decided that they will redefine the term science to allow the notion of Intelligent Design to be taught in science classes, Dover County in Pennsylvania has punted out the board that was behind the Kitzmiller lawsuit that arose after they imposed ID as part of the science curriculum.

Two steps forward, one step back?

[The Sagging Fortunes of Bush and Blair]

While George Bush has suffered a series of setbacks in recent weeks, including the indictment of advisors, we should also take note that the British are not being completely blind either.

I'm beginning to suspect that Bush is going to leave office under a cloud that only Brian Mulroney could appreciate.

[Meanwhile, at home]

Our new Governer General stuck her stilettoed foot in her mouth. Today, Jack Layton put forth a plan for an election in February - a move that only plays into the hands of the Conservative Party. The second half of the Gomery report is due in February, and as the first half has shown, voter outrage appears to only shift the polls for a few short days.

Bush is already being blamed for a gubanatorial loss in one state. The race was neck-and-neck until dubya showed up to provide his support to the local Republican. The result - a large majority for the Democrat.

He's becoming a liablity to the Republicans. One wonders how long until they start to distance themselves from him.

It's taken the Republicans _HOW_ long to figure out that they are being led by a liability?

This is a record only second to the Alberta PC's...

Yeah, but it's good news for the Alberta Liberals!
