Gravel for President!

LiveScience blogs asked the American presidential candidates for their position on various “hot button” science issues: global warming, stem cell research and evolution. Asked whether creationism should be taught in schools, Mike Gravel said:

As for creationism in the schools, Gravel says: “Oh God, no. Oh, Jesus. We thought we had made a big advance with the Scopes monkey trial … My God, evolution is a fact, and if these people are disturbed by being the descendants of monkeys and fishes, they’ve got a mental problem. We can’t afford the psychiatric bill for them. That ends the story as far as I’m concerned.”

Why is this man not leading the race! Americans: that’s the kind of thing you want your president to be prepared to say!
