What the ?

I'm doing some research for a post following up on some discussions on Pharyngula (I'll give the links later) and Red State Rabble when I came across this news item:

State Representative Cynthia Davis of Missouri prefiled two bills for the next session of the Legislature that she said "reflect what people want." One would remove the state's requirement that all forms of contraception and their potential health effects be taught in schools, leaving the focus on abstinence. Another would require publishers that sell biology textbooks to Missouri to include at least one chapter with alternative theories to evolution.

"These are common-sense, grass-roots ideas from the people I represent, and I'd be very surprised if a majority of legislators didn't feel they were the right solutions to these problems," Ms. Davis said.

"It's like when the hijackers took over those four planes on Sept. 11 and took people to a place where they didn't want to go," she added. "I think a lot of people feel that liberals have taken our country somewhere we don't want to go. I think a lot more people realize this is our country and we're going to take it back."

This may be old news to some but it is new to me (Actually, I know about the two bills she filed concerning evolution and sex education). Apparently liberals are like mass murdering terrorists!

Oh Lord she's on Juno - I need to find another internet provider! Also, I must say I'm glad I don't live in St. Charles (you poor, poor people-although I must say that's what you get for fleeing the city)!
