Intelligent design' school board booted Eight of nine members lose reelection bid

DOVER, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Voters came down hard Tuesday on school board members who backed a statement on intelligent design being read in biology class, ousting eight Republicans and replacing them with Democrats who want the concept stripped from the science curriculum.

The election unfolded amid a landmark federal trial involving the Dover public schools and the question of whether intelligent design promotes the Bible's view of creation. Eight Dover families sued, saying it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.

Dover's school board adopted a policy in October 2004 that requires ninth-graders to hear a prepared statement about intelligent design before learning about evolution in biology class.

Eight of the nine school board members were up for election Tuesday. They were challenged by a slate of Democrats who argued that science class was not the appropriate forum for teaching intelligent design.

"My kids believe in God. I believe in God. But I don't think it belongs in the science curriculum the way the school district is presenting it," said Jill Reiter, 41, a bank teller who joined a group of high school students waving signs supporting the challengers Tuesday...

Blair loses key terror bill vote. Defeat of the bill was seen as a blow to Blair's authority.


LONDON, England (CNN) -- British Prime Minister Tony Blair has suffered his first major parliamentary defeat, losing a key vote on new anti-terror laws.

The House of Commons voted 322 to 291 against a measure to allow authorities to hold terror suspects for up to 90 days without charge -- an increase from the current 14 days.

It was the first major vote against the government since Blair and his Labour Party came to power in May 1997.

CNN's European Political Editor Robin Oakley said Blair had invested his full political weight in getting the law passed, adding to the political drama.

A tense Blair was in the chamber to hear the result, shaking his head as the numbers were revealed...

Bush, GOP mired in political quicksand. NBC/WSJ poll shows president at new lows in all job approval categories


WASHINGTON - Democrats might be overstating that their gubernatorial victories Tuesday in New Jersey and Virginia are glaring signs for next year’s midterm congressional elections and beyond, but one thing is pretty clear: President Bush and the GOP seem to be mired in political quicksand.

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, released Wednesday night, finds that all five of Bush’s job approval ratings — on overall job performance, the economy, foreign policy, terrorism and Iraq — are at all-time lows in the survey. In addition, the CIA leak scandal seems to be taking a toll on the administration, with nearly 80 percent believing the indictment of Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, is a serious matter, and with Bush experiencing a 17-point drop since January in those who see him as honest and straightforward.

With the midterms a year away, these numbers could spell trouble for the GOP. “These are not good times for Republicans,” says Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart. “This is a very unhappy electorate that’s going to be unstable, and they are terrifically unstable numbers for a Republican majority”...

Intelligent design shouldn't be a left vs. right issue imo. It's just the same old creationism crap with a new name.

The "left" strikes back..?? :2razz: Where have YOU been living? Its been the "left" since just after the 2000 election that has been at war with Bush in some of the most outlandish, conspiritorial, hackneyed theories, & accusations known to man!


Examples of democrat/media behavior:

Bush fixed the 04' election, Bush is a nazi, Bush is a racist, Bush created & implemented the 9/11 attack, Bush lied about the war, Bush trying to take away everybody's rights, Bush deliberatley moved slowly with Fema aid to New Orlean's blacks, Bush & big oil, Cheney & Halliburton, & Rumsfeld is a fascist who mandates torture for muslim terrorists!!

And you sit behind your keyboard & make it sound as though the senate democrats are the ones on the recieving end of all this crap, ..& are fighting back now???

No wonder your side's of democratic party candidates HAVE to pretend to be somebody other than who they REALLY are to win elections! (Clinton's pretending to be a centrist) :2razz:

But hey, ...one "democratic" party president ain't so bad since Jimmy Carter, ..right? :smile:

The democratic party leadership have fooled NOBODY but themselves; ..but they are somewhat competent at bullshyting the media as well, & why not as the media loves to play dumb when it suits their kissing cousins who ARE the democratic party!
