Republicans seem anxious to prove they are the party of scientific ignoramuses.

No, not today, that was back in 2007, during the last Presidential election, as written by Reason magazine's Ronald Bailey. Incidentally, note the use of the term, "evolution denier," in the headline of his post. The usage is not as common in the vernacular as climate "denier," but it's out there. Hence, my argument that Texas Governor Rick Perry's vocal positions on evolution (it's just a theory) and global warming (it's a big hoax) will combine in way that seriously mars the climate skeptic image in the public mind. But hey, don't listen to me, 'cause I'm a "climate hoax promoter."
