Traipsing Into Evolution, or the reincarnation of Bagdad Bob

Joe McFaul, a graduate of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and a retired Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve. He graduted magna cum laude from Seattle University in 1983 and was lead articles editor of The Law Review there.

McFaul has been admitted to practice in California and Washington. He's also admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Court of Military Appeals, U.S. Claims Court, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, various U.S. District Courts and all Courts in California.

Now those are some legal qualifications that make Casey Luskin's years of pouring coffee into styrofoam cups at sparsely attended IDEA Club meeting pale in comparison.

McFaul also writes an excellent blog, Law Evolution Science and Junk Science, that explores intelligent design, other pseudo sciences, junk science and the abuse of science in law, generally. Red State Rabble subscribes to McFaul's RSS feed and we highly recommend his blog to others.

McFaul has just posted his own review of Traipsing into Evolution, the Discovery Institute's long, "poor us" whine about the Dover decision -- and it's hilarious. A must read.

Here are a couple of snippets to whet your appetite before you follow the link to McFaul's blog:
Losing a court case is like suffering a poker "bad beat." Nobody really wants to hear your story, and it's considered "whining" if you don't get over it after one beer. Amazingly, losers comprise more than 50% of all lawsuit participants. Most go away muttering under their breath about judges who don't understand them. Some can't get over their legal "bad beat" and write books about their loss...

The Discovery Institute PR campaign for Intelligent Design bears a laughably strong resemblance to Baghdad Bob, the Iraqi "Information Minister" who claimed there were no Americans in Iraq's capital city as those same Americans pounded up the stairs into his own studio.

What are you waiting for, get on over to Law Evolution Science and Junk Science.
