In case you missed it last night, Aasif Mandvi of The Daily Show answered the burning question: What is science really up to?
Republican Strategist Noelle Nikpour: It’s very confusing for a child to be only taught evolution to go home to a household where their parents say, “Well, wait a minute, you know, God created the Earth!”
Mandvi: What is the point of teaching children facts if it’s just going to confuse them?
Nikpour: It confuses the children when they go home! We as Americans — we are paying tax dollars for our children to be educated. We need to offer them every theory that’s out there. It’s all about choice; it’s all about freedom.
Mandvi: I mean, it should be up to the American people to decide what’s true.
Nikpour: Absolutely! Doesn’t it make common sense?
Why did she agree to an interview…?
Oh, right. None of her regular fans will ever watch this. Damn liberal media quoting her in context to make her look silly…
