You won’t find evidence of...notable Tea Bagger big whigs like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, and now Christine O’Donnell ranting in outrage at government borrowing and spending on wars and on what they think to be God’s work, now will you?

Funny, but in the new millennium, we actually have a candidate on the presidential starting blocks, Mike Huckabee, who raised his hand and said on live camera that he did not believe in evolution. Huckabee, one of the major contenders for the GOP presidential race in 2012, makes the "Flintstones" less fictional and more of a reality. At least to him and his Fundamentalist brethren. You see, Fred Flintstone, the caveman, provides the Religious Right with a viable history of planet earth where Homo sapiens actually did have pet dinosaurs like Dino. Funny how that conflicts with fossil records where dinosaurs were destroyed circa 68 million years ago when the Chicxulub meteorite crashed into the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The cloud prevented the sun from working its magic of photosynthesis for almost 200 years it has been estimated, hence, most plant life died. Many animal species followed, especially the big ones with heavy-duty metabolic stresses on their enormous bodies and a lessoned supply of food. Dinosaurs, for instance. Scientists believe that all dinosaurs perished except for a few offshoot species that lingered somehow and now crawl about as lizards. Many bird species are thought to be descendants of dinosaurs, too.
Fossil records indicate that Homo sapiens appeared some 67 million years later, long after the dinosaurs vanished from the land. But Huckabee, for one, would have us believe that dinosaurs and man lived at the same time, just a few thousand years ago in time. Interesting subject in lieu of the new Creationist Museum in Kentucky where the planet is said to be only 10,000 years old. Funny how this Creationist Museum happens to be in Kentucky where Rand Paul, a shining example of a successfully-backed Tea Bagger candidate, has won the US Senate nomination for his party, the GOP.
