Speaking of Sex Education...

During a recent Congress committee meeting to discuss whether abstinence education works or not, Rep. John Duncan (Tennessee-R) came forth with this little nugget:

"It seems rather elitist to me, for people who maybe have degrees in this field to feel that they - because they’ve studied it - somehow know better than the parents."

(emphasis mine)

How dare you scientists, with your fancy degrees and research, start giving advice based on studies and numbers! You elitist bastards! Maw and Paw Kettle know infinately more about human sexuality than you lab-coat-wearing doctors and psychologists!

Rep. John Duncan fails.

Fail? This goes beyond fail. This goes to Rep. Duncan falls down and smashes his face against rake after rake after rake.

Anti-intellectualism is alive and well in America.
