The Unevolved

Writing about the debate between libertarians and social conservatives over evolution at the American Enterprise Institute, Andrew Ferguson, a senior editor at The Weekly Standard, asks if evolution is good for conservatives.

Red State Rabble doesn't know the answer, but we do have another question:

Is heliocentrism good for conservatives? Plate tectonics? Einstein's Theory of Relativity?

One thing that probably isn't good for conservatives is reality. Reality and conservatism, at least in its present form, tend to annihilate each other like matter and antimatter.

The neo-conservative Weekly Standard, for example, is probably the only place in the universe that still clings to the quaint, faith-based notion the war in Iraq was a brilliant idea.
