Following Sam Brownback in the failed creationist presidential bid category comes Tom Tancredo, now the second of the evolution-denying trio to drop out of the presidential campaign. We Americans can take small comfort that two of those publicly promoting bronze age myths as science in an early debate were the first to drop from contention. The third, Mike more-Christian-than-thou Huckabee, has become a major contender, and the potential fourth, Mitt any-religion Romney, remains a major player. That doesn't even consider late-comer Alan Keyes, whose tenuous grasp on reality is a given.
It is truly terrifying that only two of the major candidates from the incumbent party for the highest office in the land, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, qualify as sane. The rest promise little more than the same faith-based, reality-denying legacy of the current occupant of the oval office.
