“The population of the United States is more than 300 million and it includes some of the best and brightest that the human species has to offer, probably more so than any other country in the world. There is surely something wrong with a system for choosing a leader when, given a pool of such talent and a process that occupies more than a year and consumes billions of dollars, what rises to the top of the heap is George W Bush. Or when the likes of Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin can be mentioned as even remote possibilities.”

— An excerpt from Richard Dawkin’s great article about how Presidential Candidate Rick Perry claimed that evolution is “a theory that’s out there”. It’s worth your time to read the whole thing.
