Tom DeLay, Biologist

TOM DELAY, BIOLOGIST….I was reading this profile of Tom DeLay in the LA Times this morning and noticed something I didn’t know: he has a BS in biology.

This is the same guy who explained the Columbine tragedy by saying, “Our school systems teach the children that they are nothing but glorified apes who have evolutionized out of some primordial soup of mud.” So I guess that means he doesn’t believe in evolution, right?

That must be some biology degree he earned….
