New York Times Survey: Tea Partiers Actually Better-Educated, Less “Afraid” Than the General Public
Preening liberals are simultaneously irritating but ironically amusing whenever they expose their own ignorance while attempting to label Tea Partiers “ignorant.”
The latest catalyst for liberals’ self-embarrassing epidemic of spitting into the proverbial wind, of course, was this week’s Delaware debate between Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell and her Democrat opponent Chris Coons.
At one point during the debate, the two candidates disagreed about local school districts’ proper role in deciding for themselves such curricular matters as how to teach evolution. At that point, Coons smugly asserted that the First Amendment establishes a “separation of church and state,” saying, “the First Amendment establishes a separation.”
Unfortunately for Coons and those in the crowd who descended into contemptuous giggles, the phrase “separation of church and state” appears nowhere in the actual text of the Constitution.
