I’ve discussed Republican rising star Bobby Jindal’s public support for creationism before. What’s galling is that his idiocy can’t be laid at cognitive deficiency or ignorance. I was in the same graduating class as Jindal, and I know that every biology major had considerable exposure to evolutionary biology.
Clearly, Jindal is being willfully ignorant to avoid theologically inconvenient reality. Now Jindal is further attempting to lower the value of my degree: he performed an exorcism, and believes that it cured the ‘possessed’ woman of cancer.

As Tristero notes:
Once again, I am amazed by the Republican propensity for elevating genuine weirdos into high office.
Actually, I’m not–they’re working with a very small talent pool, albeit one that functions as a highly regimented cadre (which has benefits for politics, although not governing).
Regardless, can we pull his degree? Obviously, he wasn’t paying attention.
