This bit about Sarah Palin and creationism is not as bad as it first appears.
Certainly discussion is good. Having creationism as part of the curriculum seems like a bad idea but that does not appear to be something Palin advocates.
Of course, much of the debate could be avoided by having the government finance but not provide K-12 education, something for which there is no reason to think it has a comparative advantage.
I'll have to do a longer post on this debate at some point. Both sides of the evolution debate frustrate me at times, though for different reasons.
