It's Time to Vote

Nothing RSR can say about creationism and intelligent design matters anymore.

If you still believe, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary, that teaching religion in science classes is the right thing to do, nothing we can write will dissuade you.

If you still believe what John Calvert or Casey Luskin tell you about intelligent design, it likely you also believe the U.S. is winning in Iraq, or that Katrina was sent to punish the wicked, or that Education Commissioner Bob Corkins can do something positive for Kansas school children other than resign. No witty post by RSR is likely, at this late date, to change your mind.

Likewise, if you're sick at heart about what George Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Phill Kline, Pat Robertson, Ted Haggard, John Calvert, William Dembski, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Bill O'Reilly and the religious right are doing to this country you don't need any more convincing from RSR.

You already know what to do and that is vote.

RSR will be voting tomorrow to throw the bums out. All the bums.

But this blog is about the battle between religious fundamentalists who want to use school kids as cannon fodder in the Culture Wars. We won't offer a comprehensive list of candidates. Rather, here is a list of candidates in Kansas and Ohio who will work to improve education, defend the science curriculum, and preserve the separation between church and state that allows teachers to get on with it and do their jobs:

District 1: Janet Waugh
District 3: Don Weiss
District 5: Sally Cauble or Tim Cruz
District 7: Jack Wempe
District 9: Kent Runyan or Jana Shaver

District 2: John Bender
District 3: James Uphoff or Thomas Gunlock
District 4: G.R. "Sam" Schloemer
District 7: Tom Sawyer
District 8: Deborah Cain
