People Who Get It: Editorial Page Edition

From The Washington Post, on the Smithsonian flap: Dissing Darwin:
This is precisely how the intelligent design movement has gotten as far as it has: by advocating outwardly inoffensive ideas in ever-more prestigious places, thereby giving the movement scientific validity.

That's the sound of an editorial board collectively slapping ID up, down, and all around. Not that the Smithsonian gets off scott free.
