He blames his faux pas on jet lag, but I don’t believe a word of it.

During the Democratic debate on the Gay-centric network, Logo, Bill Richardson was asked if he believed homosexuality was something you are born with or is it a lifestyle choice. He said it was a choice… twice.

I am getting very, very tired of people running for office who lack BASIC scientific skills and curiosity. Homosexuality is not something that a few humans opt to engage in, but it is something that occurs with all mammals and most of the animal kingdom. It has been reported in Time, Newsweek and on all major news outlets - how Richardson could have missed this is anyone’s guess.

The whole incident brings up the issue of what else Richardson doesn’t know? Does he really know how to get out of Iraq? Does he really know what the Centers For Disease Control is supposed to do? How about Los Alamos? Will he be able to fix NASA? That will take some brains - educated brains.

The next debate for Richardson should be on “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.”

From the looks of it, that is where we need to start with him.
