McLeroy out as TX BOE chair

The Texas Senate rejected Governor Rick “The Secessionist” Perry’s re-nomination of Don “The Dentist” McLeroy to chair the State Board of Education.  McLeroy is a young-earth creationist whose views on the teaching of evolution have threatened to cripple the state’s biology curriculum.  McLeroy will remain as a member of the BOE, but Perry will need to find a new nominee for the chair.  (Rest assured Perry won’t find an actual science advocate; more likely he’ll put forward a McLeroy clone, or perhaps a closet creationist who’ll be harder to criticize.)  But in the meantime, congratulations, Texas!
