Scott Walker: I Don't Feel Like Answering Your Silly Evolution Gotcha Questions

Not the best answer, which would be "Yes I believe in evolution because it's real," but given, as Barack Obama says, the "religious sensitivities" at play, saying "a politician shouldn't be involved in that either way" is a pretty good answer too.

The left is really a terribly insular bunch. Right now they're screaming about this as if it's some kind of great victory, but in fact only nineteen percent of Americans believe in evolution without any assistance by god at all -- 42% believe God created all animals by hand, 31% more believe in "God-guided" evolution, sort of a Walker-esque punt on the question.

I don't know why they're running around shouting like Walker just scored an own-goal. I'm not a particular fan of his answer on the merits, but as a political matter, it's neutral-to-positive.

Actually it's probably positive-to-very-positive.

Do these f***ers even read? I mean, look, I believe in evolution and frankly think other answers are silly, but that belief does not somehow preclude me from knowing the fact -- not the belief, the fact -- that evolution is a very, very minority creed in America, very unpopular, except with godless secular materialists such as myself.
