That seems to be the attitude of politicians running for office. “Vote for me, but don’t ask me what I think.”

Democrats Michelle Nunn running for the U S Senate in Georgia and Alison Lundgren Grimes running for the Senate in Kentucky both declined to say whether they had voted for Obama, the Democratic president. Were they ashamed of having voted for the head of their own party in a presidential election?

Two Republican governors, both possible candidates for the White House in 2016, declined to say whether they believe in evolution. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal declined to answer, saying, "The reality is I'm not an evolutionary biologist.”

When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was asked if he believed in evolution, he answered, “For me, I am going to punt on that one as well. That's a question politicians shouldn't be involved in one way or another. I am going to leave that up to you. I'm here to talk about trade, not to pontificate about evolution."
Both governors want to appeal to those who don’t believe in science.  Walker dealt another blow to education in his proposed budget for the state, which calls for a 13 percent cut in state aid across the university system, for a total decrease of $300 million over the next two years.
Anyway many conservatives believe that state universities have become elite bastions of liberal academics that do not prepare students for work and are a burden on taxpayers.

Unlike these craven professional politicians, possible candidate Dr. Carl Perrin, admits freely that he voted for Obama twice, and he believes in evolution. His stand on beer remains constant: He wants to be sure that Americans will always be able to afford a six-pack of cheap beer.
