Kansas v. The Truth

What's the matter with Kansas? How about this:

Risking the kind of nationwide ridicule it faced six years ago, the Kansas Board of Education approved new public-school science standards Tuesday that cast doubt on the theory of evolution.

The 6-4 vote was a victory for "intelligent design" advocates who helped draft the standards.

The six Board members who voted for the new "standards" are -- you guessed it -- Republicans.

Oh, and how's this for some icing on your cake of ignorance: "In addition, the board rewrote the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena."

Let me get this straight. The Kansas Board of Education rewrote the definition of science?! Pardon my bluntness, but what the fuck is going on in the world?
