They Follow Me Everywhere

You may have already noticed this, but it is now clear that the Republican challenger to Jennifer Granholm for governor, Dick DeVos, is an advocate of teaching creationism in public schools.

After the Ohio State School Board trial, there was quite a bit of talk that Michigan would be the next battleground state. Supposedly there were activists on the ground at a local level to start trying to bring individual school districts back to the Dark Ages. I don't know if DeVos is specifically related to this effort, the Discovery Institute, or any other anti-science organization, but he is clearly sympathetic.

I don't think either of my readers is a likely DeVos voter, but it's a point worth making clear. Many of us have family and friends who are inclined to vote R on economic reasons, but who might be shy of this particular wing of that party.
