First Hour Over; Evolution v. Creationism

What a great first hour! The Fix fashions himself as a fast typer, but even I wasn't able to cover everything of interest in the first 60 minutes of the GOP debate.

One highlight we didn't mention previously -- Mike Huckabee's response about his religious faith and creationism. Huckabee evinced real emotion (almost always a good thing in debates) on the issue; "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Either someone believes God created the process, or that it's an accident and it just happened," Huckabee said to loud applause.

McCain chimed in to praise Huckabee, saying: "I can't say it more eloquently than Pastor Huckabee just did. I hold that view."

Sen. Sam Brownback added that science and religion need not conflict. Both he and Huckabee seemed to leave the door open for an acceptance of evolution -- albeit evolution designed and controlled by God.

Mitt Romney showed well in the debate. He took in a lot of face time and explained and danced around his major issues. Just wondering why there is a virtual blackout of Mitt in these articles and the Post's coverage.

Wow. Incredible.

Not even a sentence regarding Ron Paul, the only true conservative in the debate.

He must be really far from the sphere of today's mainstream politics to not even deserve a simple comment.

A sorry excuse for an "expertise analysis".

Brownback gives lip service to the idea that science and faith are compatible, but as he argued in his Op Ed, he believes that the idea that species evolved is incompatible with his faith, and that faith should trump science if ordinary scientific methods would lead one to such a conclusion.

And Huckabee basically argued that if you believe in evolution, you are an atheist.

Yikes.

No way I would vote for some neanderthal who doesn't know the difference between a myth and reality. People all over the floor are laughing till their ribs ache.

Your doing a service, Chris. Like it or not, one of these guys will probably be president if the Democrats nominate Clinton or Obama. They MIGHT win the exact same states Kerry won, but it's highly doubtful they'll turn any red states blue. If the Democrats want to get past the primaries, they'd better nominate Wesley Clark!
