I know the election is still a year and a half away, but this is not a man who should be voted for. The problem is this, most people remember that he was the more moderate Republic who lost the primaries to George Bush. However, since then he has drastically changed his ways and I don't think the public is kept well enough aware. Since he lost his primary, he has become a war monger in the worst kind (and you would expect someone who went through the rigors of turmoil in vietnam would never want that to happen to anyone again, and would quickly realize a mistaken and lost war like vietnam was), he went against his word to speak at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University, three years after calling falwell "a preacher of intolerance" and now is a keynote speaker at the Discovery Institute, whose sole purpose is to fund bad science and initiatives to put the biblical teachings into public schools. That is against the Constitution of the United States. I cannot stand by and let this fucking asshole hypocrite be thought of as some moderate republican. He is a conservative in the worst ways. He is for the war, for tax cuts to the rich, for temporary worker status (so big corporations can keep treating immigrants like shit), against a woman's right to choose and now he is for intelligent design. This guy is worse than George "What the fuck" Bush himself. Please please please, if you never come back to my blog again, please spread the word that John McCain is a scumbag conservative and we don't need another one in the White House.

McCain To Deliver Keynote Speech For Creationists

mccainToday is Darwin Day, commemorating the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and of the publishing of On the Origin of Species. The National Academy of Sciences, “the nation’s most prestigious scientific organization,” declares evolution “one of the strongest and most useful scientific theories we have.” President Bush’s science adviser John Marburger calls it “the cornerstone of modern biology.”

Yet, on February 23, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will be the keynote speaker for the most prominent creationism advocacy group in the country. The Discovery Institute, a religious right think-tank, is well-known for its strong opposition to evolutionary biology and its advocacy for “intelligent design.” The institute’s main financial backer, savings and loan heir Howard Ahmanson, spent 20 years on the board of the Chalcedon Foundation, “a theocratic outfit that advocates the replacement of American civil law with biblical law.”

McCain has an ambiguous record on whether he supports intelligent design in the science curriculum. In 2005, he said it should be taught:

Daily Star: Should intelligent design be taught in schools?

McCain: I think that there has to be all points of view presented. But they’ve got to be thoroughly presented. So to say that you can only teach one line of thinking I don’t think is - or one belief on how people and the world was created - I think there’s nothing wrong with teaching different schools of thought.

Daily Star: Does it belong in science?

McCain: There’s enough scientists that believe it does. I’m not a scientist. This is something that I think all points of view should be presented.

But last year, he said the intelligent design theory should not be taught in the science classroom:

“I think Americans should be exposed to every point of view,” he said. “I happen to believe in evolution…I respect those who think the world was created in seven days. Should it be taught as a science class? Probably not.

As McCain continues his lurch to the right, where will he come down on intelligent design in the science classroom? We’ll be watching.
