Top GOP Contenders for 2012 All Creationists?

Via Mike's Blog Roundup, today, comes this fascinating little tidbit.
Recently, “Politico” has begun referring to a triumvirate of Republican governors -- ("Jingle") Bobby Jindal (LA), Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), and Mark Sanford (SC-- as the presumptive front-runners for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. Bad news? They’re all creationists - and at least in Jindal’s case, empty suits built for grandstanding, not deep thought.

Let’s try to forget Sarah Palin for the moment: you all know how I feel.

Though I bleed Democratic blue, the country needs a meaningful, intelligent conservative party. None of the candidates above will bring that “change.” Even though I’m sure to disagree with them, I want to respect the GOP again. Apparently I’ll have to wait more than four years.
I don't think we need a "real" Conservotard Party. We've got one: The Dims, which are as reliably wedded to the status quo as any could be.

We don't need another "New Deal," or a "Better Deal." We need a whole new DECK: A Socialist Labor party.

Anything else is just window-dressing.
