Intelligent Design 

Amy Sullivan says that even though the school board in Kansas is trying to pull back from that pesky Enlightenment thing, there's more good news than bad.

If the next election for school boards in Kansas follow the one in Dover and those fundies end up on their ass, there's more at stake than just ID in schools. It's local organizations like school boards that have given the "base" of the Republican party - i.e. the religious right - so much power in American politics today. If they're losing at that level, then it's a bellweather that their overreaching is backfiring on them even at the local level. If that were to happen nationwide, the results would be pleasing to folks like me from city councils to capitol hill.

And now I'll stop highjacking every post from the Washington Monthly blog.
