Interesting insight into the ideology that drives the people who want to occupy the highest offices in the land and select our next several Supreme Court justices. Dark Ages anyone?? The GOP ticket's appalling contempt for science and learning. - By Christopher Hitchens - Slate Magazine "This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity."
