Sarah Palin and creationism

This bit about Sarah Palin and creationism is not as bad as it first appears.

Certainly discussion is good. Having creationism as part of the curriculum seems like a bad idea but that does not appear to be something Palin advocates.

Of course, much of the debate could be avoided by having the government finance but not provide K-12 education, something for which there is no reason to think it has a comparative advantage.

I'll have to do a longer post on this debate at some point. Both sides of the evolution debate frustrate me at times, though for different reasons.
