For a guy who's sent so many people unwillingly to war, without having gone to the trouble of serving himself, that does seem a bit rich.
And the best part is that that board was voted out of office pretty much right after.
In Dover, Penn., voters elected a slate of candidates to replace a school board that had supported the teaching of intelligent design in local classrooms.
