    How do people like this get elected and re-elected? More importantly, how does someone that believes the Earth is only 9,000 years old get placed on the house committee for Science, Space, and Technology? It seems like that committee assignment directly contradicts who this man is.

    Welcome to a Democratic Republic. Those people have a right to an opinion too. They also have the right to representation. Just the same as you.

    But it kinda makes you sad to think that it can lead to someone like Obama in the White House though, doesn't it?

    This guy he is a Republican from Athens Georgia. I don't think any Obama voters elected him.

    Or maybe you are just stating there are idiots in both parties and idiots from both parties get elected. Is that what you are saying?

    My point exactly, the only connection between the two is that they have constituencies that got them elected.

    This thread is yet another example of the liberal mindset.

    "How can anybody who desn't share my beliefs be elected to office? We all must have the same beliefs in order to be a free Country"

    the liberal version of Col. Flagg.

    1. How do atheists get elected and re-elected?

    2. Nobody believes the Earth is only 9,000 years old.
    Christians believe that "adamic" man has only been here about 9,000 years.
    There's a big difference between the two.

    If Marion Berry can get reelected, why not some superstitious nutjob? It's the voters who are the real idiots. How do I know? From reading this forum.

    Sheila Jackson Lee gets reelected and you are worried about how a doctor got elected? Really, because of his religion, really?

    He's a fiscally-responsible Tea Party type with a common sense libertarian streak, so don't dismiss him as just a religious freak.

    so you are not familiar with Athens, GA it is in Clarke County which is full of UGA professors and their ilk. It is a liberal island in a conservative state

    the idiot part is spot on

    How did a man who publicly expressed concern that having too many US servicemen on Guam could cause it to tip over get elected? How does a moron like Sheila Jackson-Lee get re-elected? Why did Ted Kennedy, an alcoholic and womanizer who killed a young woman, hold office for so long?

    It's because we have become a nation full of idiots. Who we elect is a reflection of who we are. Collectively, we get the government we deserve. These morons representing us really do represent us.

    There's an entire theory these ppl have for it, and a lot of people believe it. Did you know there's a creationist "museum" with people riding dinosaurs?

    That's nothing, there are people that believe Obama was going to be a great President.

    That makes people riding dinosaurs seem plausible by comparison.

    It's simply the nature of democracy for thousands of years. Democracies don't elect Socrates, democracies kill Socrates. There is simply no way you can average the following inputs and get a brilliant output -- some people are just in denial about it.
