The Disco 'tute is a group of people in Seattle who claim to be all about Intelligent Design, but are in fact just trying to impose their religious views on everyone else. This has been so well-documented -- kinda like evolution and the fact that the Earth is billions of years old -- that it would be crazy to deny it. So for them to actually accuse a pro-evolution board member on the Texas BoE of having her religion bias her actions, well... it's like Jeffrey Dahmer telling you to be a vegetarian. Even Salon Magazine slaps them down. Whenever I picture what life must be life at the 'tute, all I can see in my mind are people running around with their pants on fire.
