    Yep, they have. It will be BTO, The Guess Who, Rush, Loverboy, and Bryan Adams, that's it.

    So the American media is just as stupid as the British media? Is this a contest to see who can become the most trivial?

    The media is shallow, yes, but it seems much of their audience is just as bad.

    I can only assume he is smart enough to realize that he is making Walkers case for him. It was meant to be a trip marketing commerce, not a presidential campaign outing (regardless of any other ulterior motives). We know all too well that if head answered all those other questions his haters would be pissing themselves over his campaigning on the state dime.

    Haters gonna hate. And they HATE Scott Walker.

    That's a pretty big and illogical leap you make! Scott walker doesn't answer a question, so your assumption is that he wants to invade the schools and force people to accept his faith (which is an unknown in this discussion). Wow! Funny that you think he is the dangerous one.... seems like it's more dangerous to be making things up as you have done.

    BTW, why keep faith out of public school? Is faith not part of the human condition? Is faith not foundational to understanding origin, history, and the motivations for countless events in every field of inquiry? Is faith not a part of student life? Here in America we do not keep religion out, we practice it freely, remember?

    Yes, but those "volumes" are of your making not his. If your fears and fantasies inform your opinion of Walker that's fine, but it's unfair and dishonest to attribute them to him, and then spread your make-believe version publicly.

    "trivial" is making an issue out of this, such as you and I are doing. The whole thing is rather silly.

    He is going to get asked a ton of questions in the campaign, often designed to find out who he is and how he thinks. Some of those questions are going to seem silly, but the results will be revealing. The guy has to get use to it.

    You can have the last word on this, we are beating this issue beyond its death.

    The easy answer is that evolution is a public policy issue. The foundation of modern microbiology and pathology, disbelief in evolution could lead to bad policy choices around disease control and other public health concerns. Likewise, evolution helps us understand biodiversity and helps us grasp what happens when we damage the stability of an ecosystem. Which is to say that a stance on evolution could also have consequences for environmental policy. And on the local level, what you think about evolution can matter for education policy: The standards you use, the textbooks you buy, and the school administrators you hire.

    Scott Walker refuses to discuss evolution: There is no good reason to ask the Wisconsin governor about human creation.

    Because faith, religion, etc should never be in a public, taxpayer school. Unless you want to waste the kids time by teaching them every single fatith, at the expense of actually learning something. If you want to teach dogma, do it in a private dogma school.
