He’s Doomed

According to this campaign ad, Bradley Byrne, a Republican candidate in Alabama, once supported teaching evolution in high school.

The ad tells viewers, for example, that Byrne supported “teaching evolution” because it “best explains the origin of life.” The voiceover is incredulous, as if the very idea is preposterous.

It goes on to note that Byrne told voters that he believes “there are parts of the Bible that are meant to be literally true and parts that are not.” This, too, is characterized as some kind of radical, easily-dismissed belief.

Wait until they find out that Mr. Byrne thinks the world is round.
