Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)

Red State Rabble exposes the hypocrisy in the recent statement by the President with regards to "intelligent design" creationism that "Both sides ought to be properly taught [evolution and intelligent design], so people can understand what the debate is about."
Remember this the next time you hear ID advocates pontificating that students should be exposed to "both sides of the debate" in science class.
