Republican candidate says the fact that chimpanzees can’t talk shows that evolution is bunk
For snarky liberal pundits like me, the Republican Party’s peculiar penchant for coming up with zany candidates for high office is a gift that keeps on giving.
Take, for example, the GOP candidate for lieutenant governor of Virginia, a right-wing clergyman named E.W. Jackson, whom I had fun mocking just a few weeks ago (see HERE). This guy’s every utterance is crazier than the one before.
In a book Jackson wrote a few years ago (notice the glaring misspelling on the cover above), he says the theory of evolution is disproved by the fact that chimpanzees can’t talk.
The story is HERE.
