Sam, You're Not in Kansas Anymore

An Op-Ed in today's New York Times by Sam Brownback attempts to repair some of the damage done to his prospects to be considered a serious candidate for president after he raised his hand at a Republican debate not long ago to say he doesn't believe in evolution.

Stung, perhaps, by widespread perception that he's the sort of idiot who should never be allowed within five miles of the White House, Brownback now believes "it is unrealistic to expect that every complicated issue will be addressed with the nuance or subtlety it deserves."

Certainly Brownback's own fundamentalist supporters can't be blamed for lacking nuance or subtlety.
