idiocy all around

Mike Huckabee thinks that bumblebees can't fly, and believes he is not a primate. And this idiot--yes, idiocy is the only word appropriate in this context--is running for US presidency? WTF??? (Thanks to Recursivity).

I must then, together with many other bloggers and scientists, call for a presidential debate on science and technology. We cannot have a person ignorant of the basic facts of the universe we live in, the planet we are stuck on, and the way of thinking that is helping us uncover these facts (i.e., science) in charge of the most powerful nation on the planet. This job carries an awesome responsibility and an incredibly dangerous amount of power; village idiots need not apply.

Mailer recanted after a while, so did flew, apparently. But they have both become more deistic than purely theistic, and certainly, neither one is a Christian or anything that stupid. And Mailer managed to croak in the meantime so we cannot really clarify any of his beliefs, while flew seems to be going senile (if that is a politically correct term)...
