The adolescent mean girls of the Secular Left were squeeing yesterday because Republican Governor Scott Walker was asked a question about the theory of evolution and gave an answer, the short version of which is, “who cares?” which, in their eyes, marked him as a rube. In fairness, his answer could have been better. Any Republican asked this ‘gotcha’ question should simply respond, “That question is irrelevant. I am running to help the middle class who are being pounded by this president and his party, not to engage in Scientific or Theological debate.”

The Left does not revere actual scientists, they revere people like Bill Nye, Neil Degrasse Tyson, and Jim Parsons who play scientists on TV. Ask a typical secular leftist who won the Nobel Prize for Physics last year and they will have to make a dash for the Google Machine.
A typical leftist only really cares about evolution as a tribal marker, a way of determining whether someone is “of the body.” When a leftist asks someone their view on evolution, it is not to elicit a discussion of scientific theory, it’s the precise equivalent of a bitchy thirteen year old girl checking out another girl’s clothes to determine if she’s ‘cool’ or not.
