Evidently, Rick Perry favours teaching intelligent design as a "science". He supports the repeal of the 16th Amendment, under which Congress imposes income tax. He is opposed to single sex marriage.
The conversation got me thinking about this year’s class of Republican hopefuls for the Presidency. I’ve lost count, but as Tim Pawlenty ducked out and Rick Perry threw his hat in, I believe there are 16. If Sarah Palin joins in, that will make 17. But, male or female, politically --- and despite all the current furour about Perry's distinctive style --- they look like Stepford Wives to me.
