Anti-evolution resolution introduced in Oklahoma

You have got to read this, because it is too stupid to make up.

Rep. Todd Thomsen, has filed two resolutions in the Oklahoma House to oppose the teaching of the theory of evolution at the department of Zoology at the University of Oklahoma and to oppose an invitation to Richard Dawkins to speak on Campus.

There are two issues here that should be considered by rational people:

1. A politician is trying to dictate what can and cannot be presented as science. Now, I thought it was only The Onion parody last time that had some state legislation that wanted to change pi to being exactly 3. This latest incident would have been hysterical had it been an Onion article, but sadly, it isn't.

2. That there are people who actually voted for this guy into office, and might even vote for him again!
