  •  I wouldn't think Texas would elect a democrat (0+ / 0-)

    who had any sort of liberal/progressive cred.  I could see it on an ad ... Posted on the far-left Daily Kos ... as they call us.  I hope the diarist got my intention.  I meant it in the most cynical way, I guess.

      I think we'll have to be prepared for worse ads than "She posted on Daily Kos"!  The best thing I can do is to be a voice of reason and civility and to keep the focus on the true purpose of the board, in order to win over people who value experience and commitment to education, regardless of whether they consider themselves liberal, progressive, or conservative.

        I really think that deep down inside, people want their kids to do well on exams and know stuff ... even evo-lution!  At least I hope so.

        •  People do care about kids (0+ / 0-)

          You're right.  We need to focus on how much people care about their kids.  Even if some parents don't accept the theory of evolution, they may be amenable to the argument that their kids won't do well in college or science-related careers if they don't learn scientific method and evolutionary theory.

          The parents can teach them at home whatever they want about origins or religious beliefs, but that doesn't have a place in the science classroom.
