we've all got our idols

An excellent piece on the problem with David Barton. It points out that if, perhaps, you want to be an historian who claims that America was intended to be a Christian nation, it would help if you bothered to get some training - any training - in history. I knew Barton doesn't have a PhD; what I didn't know is that his bachelor's degree is in math education. But, hey, if truthiness is good enough for Steven Colbert, it should be good enough for all of us.
