“PRINCETON, NJ — Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process.” [Gallup]

“Obama’s one accomplishment? Legislation to teach ‘comprehensive sex education’ to kindergartners. Learning about sex before learning to read?”

“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Sen. Obama said during a town hall style event in Lebanon, Virginia. The comment was a reference to Gov. Palin’s joke during the Republican National Convention that lipstick is the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom.

Ummm, okay… But as much as we’d like to see some offense, something tells us this might might not spin well. His other one-liner was less provocative: “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change,’ it’s still going to stink.”
