Evolution, intelligent design, and the President

The daily Borowitz Report (by Andy Borowitz) hasn't been that funny lately, but today's outing made me giggle. The headline is EVOLUTION, INTELLIGENT DESIGN FAIL TO EXPLAIN BUSH: Scientists in Oslo Debate Origin of President. Excerpts, without further ado:

“There are some here who firmly believe that the theory of evolution explains President Bush, since he shares many characteristics in common with the chimpanzee,” said Mr. Kyosuke, one of the world’s leading zoologists. “And yet, if you put him and a chimp side by side, it is hard to say with any confidence that Mr. Bush has evolved.”

Similarly, supporters of the intelligent design theory have been frustrated in their attempts to apply that theory to President Bush, Mr. Kyosuke said.

“Most efforts to call Mr. Bush the result of intelligent design crumble to dust the moment he opens his mouth,” Mr. Kyosuke said. “So we’re really back to square one.”

As for Mr. Bush’s refusal to speak to antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan, Mr. Kyosuke said that he has developed a new theory to explain this phenomenon.

“I believe that President Bush is like ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin,’” Mr. Kyosuke said. “He’s afraid to talk to a woman.”

Hilarious! And what about those pro-war demonstrators who camped near Cindy Sheehan? Why do they hate Peace?

Oh, they don't hate peace. They just love the beautiful glow of freedom that the war in Iraq shines on the US and on Iraq. Well, except for the women in Iraq, whose rights are eroding (see this post at Bitch Ph.D. for more on that).

Who thinks anonymous/Jon is a spammer and who thinks he's legit? I'm kind of thinking spammer since a post about Bush doesn't really shout "gifted child."
