Evolution in Georgia

Evolution is in the news in Georgia right now.

I find it interesting that the Republican governor of Georgia is trying to strike a moderate pose on this issue. Jimmy Carter has also weighed in, reaffirming his status as a liberal evangelical by opposing any erosion of the teaching of evolution. As I've noted before, evolution is not a controversial subject at the elite levels, and populist politicians tend to quell the debate on this topic so that they don't have to show their non-popular hand....

There are many bloggers talking about this so I'll leave it at that.
