Christine O’Donnell is against science, of course

It couldn’t be less surprising that Delaware’s Republican nominee for the Senate — and masturbation opponent — Christine O’Donnell doesn’t understand science, “theories”, and evolution:

Creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.

It goes without saying, O’Donnell probably has a different idea than I do about what constitutes evidence.

Bonus treat: O’Donnell has also spoken out against the dangers of “orgy rooms”:

All this coedness is outside normal life, said Miss O’Donnell. “Most average American adults don’t use coed bathrooms – if they had the option of a coed bathroom at a public restaurant, they wouldn’t choose it.” Coedness “is like a radical agenda forced on college students,” she said.

I agree. That agenda is totally radical.

This is where we contemplate for a moment that, as Andrew Sullivan reminds us, the Tea Party is supposedly all about fiscal sanity, limited government, and constitutional principles, and not about social conservatism.
