The Sound of One Wingnut Flapping

Just when the states have started sorting out whether or not they accept the theory of evolution, Texas representative Warren Chisum dummies up the debate a bit (and I seriously love that phrase now that I know it) by sending out a memo (written by some other wingnut) arguing that evolutionary theory is a centuries old Jewish conspiracy that derives from the Kabbala, is fostered by Hollywood (of course), and successfully argued against by a website that, incidentally, argues that the Earth is the center of the universe! Chisum apparently authored the 2005 proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and, from the sound of it, will be proposing one mandating tin-foil hats any day now.
