Fristing Science

Now I totally understand how Bill Frist could feel comfortable making his video diagnosis of Terri Schiavo: he thinks faith=science. Here's an AP report from today:
Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, spoke to a Rotary Club meeting Friday and told reporters afterward that students need to be exposed to different ideas, including intelligent design.

"I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of fact, of science, including faith," Frist said.

This statement may involve a complete confusion of what science actually is, but it does explain why people like Arthur Laffer keep being referred to as economists in the media, and why people like Dick Cheney are taken seriously when it comes to Iraq policy.

Doesn't anyone on the right give a damn about the decline of a great nation?

Sigh.
