Not Qualified May 4, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in politics.
This is from an article in the New York Times describing the Republican presidential primary debase:
There were revealing moments that went past the well-rehearsed lines by all the candidates. Three of the candidates — Mr. Huckabee, Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado — raised their hands to signal that they did not believe in evolution.
These three are not qualified to lead the United States. I hope they will be quickly defeated in the primaries.
Running this country — or almost any country — requires the leader to have a basic understanding of science and “how things work.” Statements like this show an utter lack of basic understanding in the world that we live in today. We already know that things are not run well when our leader is disconnected from reality. Get rid of them now.
