While I have never been a fan of macro-evolution; a cow turning into a whale, a reptile turning into a bird, or a rat to a man, new evidence has come to light that may cause me to change my thinking.
We all remember the hoots that were had when Senator John Kerry voted for it before he voted against it. Poor Senator Kerry, he was just ahead of his time. But, like most pioneers, he had to take the arrows for the benefit of others to follow.
Now that the pioneer came and conquered, the settlers may enter in safety.
Ezekiel Emanuel preached withholding of care to useless eaters.
Nancy Pelosi was a big fan of town hall disrupters in 2006.
John Kerry was just ahead of his time, but his ability to evolve from a cow to a beached whale was proved by his electoral success. Emanuel and Pelosi are able to use Kerry's victory as a stepping stone to achieve their own successes. Emanuel evolved from a Neanderthal to a rat; Pelosi from a bird to a reptile.
Let us hope that Pelosi and Emanuel are able to succeed in like manner as Kerry.
