He's "not comfortable with intelligent design"

Rick Santorum, R. Pennsylvania, has a problem, apparently, with intelligence. Or, Intelligence.

"I'm not comfortable with intelligent design being taught in the science classroom."

This is plain wacky, with all due respect to the senator from Pennsylvania.

Evolution is a legitimate theory (and not inconsistent with Catholicism, by the way.)

Intelligent design can and should easily be seen as an equally legitimate theory, even to atheists.

Actually neither theory is incompatible with the other.

What's with Santorum?
