‘Straight Talk Express’ Takes Another Detour

Posted by MEC on February 21, 2007

That straight-talking John McCain, who assures us he is not pandering to the Religious Reich Right, is going to deliver a keynote address at an event co-sponsored by the Discovery Institute. (H/T Majikthise)

That would be the same Discovery Institute that’s leading the charge for “evolution is just a theory, and science is no different from religious beliefs”.

Nope. Not pandering. Just, oh I don’t know, maybe he calls it “rethinking”?

Think Progress has the goods on Mr. Straight Talk.

What he said in 2005:

Daily Star: Does [creation “science”] belong in science?

McCain: There’s enough scientists that believe it does. I’m not a scientist. This is something that I think all points of view should be presented.

What he said in 2006:

“I happen to believe in evolution…I respect those who think the world was created in seven days. Should it be taught as a science class? Probably not.“

What he’s saying in 2007: Whatever will lure the Know-Nothings away from other Republican candidates.
