Happy Monday from Katie and Lucy

Katie and Lucy were on the beach discussing Intelligent Design this morning. Lucy has been reading the Rude Pundit and was quite taken with his thoughts on the subject, which she shared with us:
"Intelligent design" is such a cutely ironic name, in the "Clear Skies Initiative" school of obfuscative rhetoric, because you have to be a complete fucking moron to believe in it. It's Christianity without mentioning Christ, because, if, say, the universe was really just shat out of the anus of a dark Baal-like deity, it'd totally fuck-up the whole "intelligent design" thing (but, goddamn, what a laugh we could all have, no?).
Katie then noted, with her characteristic understated irony, that the one quote-unquote "expert" scientist they trotted out before the Kansas Board of Education to support ID theory, an embryologist named Jonathan Welles, is also a a member of Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church.

Kobe (not pictured), still chortling at the way potty-mouth Lucy cleverly contrived to say all those bad words, really just wanted Katie to stop hogging the tennis ball. He had to acknowledge, however, that the conversation between three dogs on a beach in Oregon was probably more intelligent than was possible to find on the subject in the entire state of Kansas, and certainy at the NRO.

Kobe would like it known that he also wishes you a good week.
