As a molecular evolutionary biologist can I just send you a primal "AAAARGGGGHHHHH!!!" in response to Sarah Palin, the figure-head of a regressive, anti-intellectual, anti-science movement, using the language of Natural Selection and behavioral biology to make the case for her vague "freedom" agenda?
No? Then I apologize. I'll return to head-butting my lab bench until the pain in my soul stops.
As far as Palin is concerned, the pain in one's soul never stops.
