McCain's Regression

From the AZ Daily Star, via Political Wire:

On Tuesday, though, [John McCain] sided with the president on two issues that have made headlines recently: teaching intelligent design in schools and Cindy Sheehan, the grieving mother who has come to personify the anti-war movement.

McCain told the Star that, like Bush, he believes "all points of view" should be available to students studying the origins of mankind.

The theory of intelligent design says life is too complex to have developed through evolution, and that a higher power must have had a hand in guiding it.

At a breakfast meeting Tuesday with the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, McCain said Sheehan is probably being used by organizations opposed to the U.S. mission in Iraq. But, he added, she is "a symptom, not a cause" of growing public discontent with the war.

How can someone with enough sense to acknowledge global warming turn around and legitimize an ideology masquerading as science and claim that a Gold Star Mother asking questions that senators like him should be asking is merely a pawn?

Guess I shouldn't be surprised if McCain continues to marginalize himself for the sake of political ambition.
