Todd Zywicki of the Volokhs attempts to attack the left while ignoring how many conservatives are split from reality over creationism/intelligent design. I'm outsourcing this correction to Pharyngula.
The one place I'd differ with Pharyngula is with the Harvard President's off-hand wondering whether biological differences between genders play a role in scientific achievement. While wrong, it was little more than a question, not an assertion, and the reaction to it has been exaggerated.
I think this whole issue supports my argument that creationism is a wedge issue for the left that splits conservative support. Zywicki is casting about for a distraction.
Volokh Correction, wedge, science, politics
