Texas Governor Rick Perry

I find it impossible to avoid commenting on Texas Governor Rick Perry.   Recently engaged in a question and answer session with a fourth-grader, he was asked how old the earth was.  He replies that:

In Texas we teach both creationism and evolution in our public schools, because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.

It’s like he’s in a contest with Bachmann to see who can out-idiot Bush.  Interestingly, the subtext, which is consistent with Perry’s gubernatorial record, is that schools are completely unnecessary because fourth-graders are clever enough to figure that stuff out.
