Good for Matt
I see that Matt Yglesias has reconsidered his stance on "intelligent design no big deal". We need to be constantly on the watch for the right's continuous attempts to construct spurious arguments for whacko ideas which they then manage to drive into the mainstream thought which in turn legitimatizes them. Each of these attempts at putting these ideas into the mainstream needs to challenged. We cannot allow them to put their crap like intelligent design on an equal footing with evolutionary theory because once it reaches this level it must be addressed. The right relies on us not to challenge their interpretation of published scientific fact or "cherry picking" ideas from the mainstream that they convolute into their idiot arguments. Nip it in the bud.
