Ivins: As Texas schools suffer, Perry can only pander
Molly Ivins isn't happy with the obvious pandering to the creationist crowd by Texas Governor Rick Perry who is running for re-election. Perry recently said IDC was a legitimate science theory that should be taught in public schools.
Two days later Perry said he had no intention of sponsoring or encouraging any legislation to promote IDC in Texas classrooms. He has not explained what exactly is scientific about IDC.
Rick Perry has been pandering to extreem right factions ever since Karl Rove became one of his advisors a few years ago.
