Since the beginning of time man (and woman) has changed as a species, whether you believe that in the scientific sense or the emotional sense you can’t deny that we as a species are constantly changing.

You can however apparently deny scientific fact, but I’m getting off topic. Point is, nature is change and we as a species are no exception, it’s true in science, and it’s true in politics.

Here in the U.S. we as a political society have evolved, for better or worse, to where we are today, and this past Tuesday in Georgia this evolution was highlighted most appropriately by the nearly 4,000 write-in congressional votes placed for Charles Darwin.

Of course as evolved as we may be I don’t believe we’ve learned to raise the dead yet, creating a small hiccup in this political plan, that and Darwin still lost by 205,000 votes to the otherwise unopposed Rep. Paul Broun.

Did I mention Rep. Broun is anti-evolution? This of course displaying yet another aspect of the evolution of humanity–humor. Bravo nearly 4,000 Georgians. Bravo.

    I’m pretty impressed that 4,000 Americans, let alone Georgians, knew that was funny. Without a smartphone to look it up, that means these folks either actually knew it or remembered it from looking it up before heading into the polls…Well played, Georgia, well played…
