Democrats wake up and take the SBOE debacle seriously


The first step in de-moronizing the Texas State Board of Education has begun. In past years the Democrats have ill-advisedly ignored the SBOE, preferring more high-profile races in Texas politics. But with the current board overrun by anti-science creationist wackaloons who are turning the entire state into fodder for late-night comedians, the Dems are finally extracting craniums from rectums and realizing that the neocon theocrats cannot be allowed to gang-rape the education of an entire generation of Texas students.

And so the first challengers have been announced for the 2010 elections. Democratic activist Susan Shelton has announced she will challenge walking joke Cynthia “Obama Is a Terrorist” Dunbar, and that “as many as a dozen” other Democrats are considering a run. It’s about frickin’ time.

Meanwhile, the recent, second hearing on January 21 was evidently no less packed with stupid than the first. (Note to Clare Wuellner, who emailed me urging me to participate this time: I did try to call the number you gave me, but got nothing but a dispatcher who sounded like she couldn’t hear me and kept saying, “Hello, go ahead!” until I hung up. Weird.) You know, it’s just so tiresome the way these people try to pretend, with all of their “strengths and weaknesses” code words and what have you, that their opposition to evolution education isn’t about promoting their religious agendas. And then when these hearings are held, the fools speaking out for their side put the lie to that the instant they open their idiot gobs.

Folks, we got change in 2008. Let’s get some more in ’10. Vote!

    CA: I think the RNC hunted all the rational Republicans to extinction when the neocon inmates took over the asylum.

    Wow, so you’re saying the RNC is playing out the story arch where Joker gets himself caught by Batman in order to take over Arkham? Maybe someone will make a mod of the new Batman: Arkham Asylum game that replaces the characters with politicians. All of the sudden the RNC is much more interesting. In all seriousness, though, what few intelligent, honorable Republicans there were in the Republican Party have either left the party by now, or sold their non-existent little souls.

    The only problem is that this won’t actually take place after the board has made their decision, meaning it’ll be another 12 years until we can undo whatever they’ve done.
