Republican ducks and dodges evolution question

Oh dear. Dear oh dear.

Mike Pence Ducks and Dodges the Evolution Question for 5:25

Sci/Tech Tue, May 5, 2009 at 7:22:20 pm PDT

You’ll never witness a better example of political pandering than this video, in which Indiana Republican Representative Mike Pence ducks, dodges, and refuses to answer simple questions from Chris Matthews about whether he accepts the theory of evolution — even including the obligatory “global warming” diversion that we’ve seen in so many LGF threads on the subject. Pence is very obviously trying not to get on the bad side of the Luddite wing of the GOP; it’s just pathetic.

(And no, this doesn’t mean I’m suddenly a fan of Chris Matthews, by the way.)

And people wonder why the Republican Party has the reputation for being anti-science. The answer is right here in this excruciating five minutes and twenty five seconds of video.
