Because it's a day that ends in Y, some state legislature is beclowning itself with an ill-informed debate about science and religion in the classroom. Today, it's the Oklahoma House of Representatives' turn, as it reviews the proposed "Scientific Education and Academic Freedom Act."
That certainly sounds scientific. And educational. And very, very freedomy.

Rick Santorum is risking all his presidential hopes on one key demographic: women. From his hardline stance on abortion, to his hardline stance on contraception, to his hardline stance on women in the military, he wants all the women in this country to know that he cares about their safety. Especially if that means keeping them safe from their own decisions.
Most women have the wrong idea about Santorum. He doesn't hate us. In fact, he frames every issue, social or economic, around how he believes women should be treated…
A voter asked Santorum about his plans to strengthen Social Security. He responded by saying the current system, under which people can retire at age 62 and live for another two decades, is unsustainable. That's a truth, he said, that politicians are unwilling to speak because it will result in campaign attack ads saying that people like him want to "throw Grandma off the cliff."
"Sixty-two-year-old grandmas aren't in a wheelchair, and they’ll punch back if you try to push them off the cliff," he said.
See? Santorum knows how strong women can be. Ladies, I say we give this candidate a second look. It's very brave of him to always go out on a ledge to protect us.
And if we all vote for someone else in the upcoming election, we should be able to give him just the push he needs to finally send him over the edge of that ledge.
