Just What the Republicans need, another loony running for congress

Just what Republicans need to shore up their reputation, another loony running for congress:

"Republicans will have a contest to choose a challenger to Rep. Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., this year. Evansville resident Paul Abramson announced Monday that he will seek the GOP's nomination in the 18-county 8th District represented by Ellsworth.

Abramson is the founder and editor of, which promotes 'creation science' and calls evolution 'primarily a spiritual deception.'"

Way to thoroughly research your subject Mr. Abramson: two major errors in four words. Evolution is not spiritual, and it's not a deception. Oh well, I guess we can't expect all of our politicians to be up to speed on science, since their job is really to know the law.

"Abramson said he also would introduce a bill to require display of the Ten Commandments in federal courthouses."

[Sigh]. Ever hear of something called the First Amendment Mr. Abramson? I know you are busy being a hypocrite for Christ and all, but before you get all morally superior on us, perhaps you should go back and review those commandments, particularly #9, you know, the one about bearing false witness.

Let's hope Indiana sends this yahoo packing. America needs to look forward, not back.
