Somebody Missed the Dover Trial...

I'm a week behind the times on this, but perhaps some of you missed out on Delaware Senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell's most recent debate performance. This particular debate was made famous by the Republican/Tea Party candidate's ignorance of the constitution ("Can you remind me of what the [14th and 16th amendments] are?") and the fact that she was unaware of the first amendment's establishment clause ("Where in the constitution is separation of church and state?" [laughter from law school audience], "Let me just clarify, you're telling me the separation of church and state is found in the first amendment?"). However, there are also some real gems about evolution and intelligent design, including the claim that creationism and intelligent design are distinct (at the 1:15 mark). Do you think Judge John E. Jones III is available for interventions?
