Wow, Republican candidates really are stupid and/or ill-educated. Sure, British politicians are all lying, horrible bastards - like every politician - but at least they're well educated.

That Akin guy is just stupid, and grill himself with racist references to other races' women: why should it be "shocking" to be attracted to Arabic women?

Except that I worry for Bill Nye, because no amount of intelligence, logic, or reason can compete against the sheer obstinacy of stupidity and poor education.

Pre-coffee, so the title of that article made me think I was in the Monkey forum.

In re to the Democrats have to win by a landslide this time around, I'm amazed at how many people have just sort of given up.

I'm starting to wonder if the conservative tactic here has bene to simply wear us down.

If the Democrats don't win multiple state elections by anything less than a complete blowout, I shudder for the future of America.

Todd Akin Agrees to Debate ‘Monkey-Lover’ Bill Nye

Continuing his unconventional campaign for a U.S. Senate seat, Missouri Congressman Todd Akin has agreed to debate world renown science educator Bill Nye, saying he wants to "destroy once and for all the myth of the Darwinist monkey god."

Last week Akin claimed that Hurricane Isaac was god's punishment for Bill Nye's denial of creationsim. Nye responded by challenging Akin to a science debate during a live television interview.

Today in a press conference on the steps of an the Saint Louis Science Center  Akin accepted Nye's challenge and offered a debate on all matters scientific.

"I am here today to announce that I am wiling to come into BIll Nye's house - the house of science - and debate this radical Darwinist over his extreme, secular, Jesus-denying views."

"Bill Nye and my opponent Claire McCaskill represent the liberal, godless, monkey-loving agenda which is pushing our great nation into permanent decline. If we conservative Christians can win the battle of ideas, its the first step towards taking our country back."

Adversus Solem Ne Loquitor

In his speech Akin outlined the topics over which he wants to spar, emphasising his antipathy toward the scientific consensus on global climate change, evolution, and the origin of natural disasters.

Akin lambasted the idea that God would let the Earth get too hot for humans, and mocked scientists for thier inability to predict volcanic eruptions. But it was the congressman's argument against evolution that was perhaps most compelling:

"Bill if you think human beings and monkeys are so similar, how come I've never been attracted to one? I've been attracted to black women. I've been attracted to Asian women. And I've even on occasion been attracted Arab women, as shocking as that may be."

"But Bill, I have never in my life seen a female monkey and thought - wow there's a MILF. How do you explain that Bill? I thought we were all supposed to be same? I thought we were all just one big happy hominid family? "

"How can we come from monkeys if we can't even have sex with them?. It looks like that 'theory' of yours isn't as airtight as you say, huh Bill?"

Darwin's Wolverine?

Akin then argued that science and religion held separate and unequal claims to absolute truth:

"You see the reality is ladies and gentleman is that Bill has his god, and I have mine. He worships Darwin and his monkey disciples. And I worship the good lord Jesus Christ. We come from two very different worldviews. One has the power of truth on its corner, and the other has Satan. And Satan must be defeated."

"So Bill Nye the Monkey Guy, the gauntlet has been thrown, and the ball is in your corner. I'm ready anytime between now and election day. Just give me a call, or send me a tweet and its on."

"And Bill, I'll bring the bananas."

Akin's opponent  Senator Claire McKaskill issued a press release soon after the conference offering to pay for the debate out of her own personal bank account:

"I think this event would be great for the people of Missouri. I'd like to hear more of what Todd Akin has to say."

read a great quote today...paraphrasing: "the tea party people aren't really crazy, just bearing their own brand of American misinformation.  On Fox News they look a mile wide but their conviction runs an inch deep."

I'm almost starting to feel sorry for the GOP. It's like watching a coke addict who refuses to see they have a problem.

This guy is hilarious.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The new chairman of the Republican National Committee praised House Republicans Saturday for their universal opposition to President Obama's stimulus bill and used his family's own life experiences to justify voting against it.

"I know we're living in the era of bipartisanship," Steele joked to the House GOP congressmen who gathered this weekend to discuss policy and politics. "I thought it was very important to send a signal, and you sent it loudly, very clearly, that this party, the leadership of this caucus, would stand first and foremost with the American people. You made it very clear that in order to grow through this recession that you not redistribute the wealth of the people of this nation."

The former Maryland lieutenant governor specifically spoke about his mother as he slammed the Obama plan.

"My mom was a sharecropper's daughter with a fifth-grade education," Steele said. "And my mother knew how to balance the budget without taking money out of my pocket."

Steele drew cheers from the crowd when he pledged the GOP would re-take the majority in Congress, beginning with the fight over New York's 20th congressional district — recently vacated by the state's newly-named senator, Kirsten Gillibrand. She defeated GOP Rep. John Sweeney in 2006.

"I'm in the business of winning elections," said Steele. But he also noted that he was unsuccessful in his 2006 bid for the Senate.

"As a black Roman Catholic conservative from Washington, D.C., and Maryland, I also know how to lose elections," he said.
