Quick Question For Rick Perry, Governor of The Lone Star State™:

Yesterday, Texas Governor Rick Perry picked avowed Creationist Gail Lowe to head up the Texas Board of Education.

Ms. Lowe is a firm believer that the earth is only about 6,000 years old, and that any "science" to the contrary is fraudulent.

She also believes (I am assuming) that The Flintstones is actually a documentary.

However, apparently Gail Lowe was the less controversial choice!

The other option under consideration by Perry was a woman named Cynthia Dunbar, who is also a creationist, but believes even crazier stuff. Like the country should be run by a Christian government using a "biblical litmus test," that public schools are unconstitutional, that Obama spells the End Of America™, and he isn't really a natural-born American citizen."

Yikes.

So, Governor Perry, I'll close with a simple question:

Aren't there ANY Conservative Republicans in Texas who aren't, you know... bat-shit crazy?
