+John Timmer dives into our dysfunctional political world to talk about why some Presidential hopefuls are willing to court ignorance.

I really, really wish the GOP could deal with science. This is such a waste of time.
Now it's Ron Paul's turn: He called evolution just one more theory, as if it's an untested hypothesis, and to call creationism equally plausible. Is there any Republican candidate other than Huntsman who isn't dismissing science and the scientific method?

Our global economic competitors don't treat math and science with contempt, and it shows.

I've waded into the debate because I think it's genuinely important. I should also note that I found +Felix Salmon's POV very compelling, and that's why I chose to join the discussion. I realize that this may be way too much insider baseball for some of you!

On the topic of the "post-PC era," I present to you this poll, which originally was an editorial, which originally was born of two sentences I salvaged from an editorial on the post-PC era that I scrapped. You can see where I sit on the question, although please don't mistake this for a complete argument.

I was not expecting this until late next year. Shocking!

I'm amused by the delayed by steady stream of nay-saying on the "post-PC era" silliness from last week. Wishing I hadn't scrapped an essay on the topic from last Wednesday that felt "old" to me.

I think it's worth noting that this story comes at the same time that the West Memphis 3 are finally freed, 3 boys who were convicted of a triple murder with no evidence whatsoever.

Long Beach, CA, where the police apparently can arrest you for not choosing your photography subjects with triteness in mind.
