VIDEO Perry talks to kid about evolution and lies about what is taught in Texas schools
[link to tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com]

The mother cut back in: "Ask him why he doesn't believe in science."

Perry continued: "Because I figure you're smart enough to figure out which one is right."

The mother continued to tell her son, "Ask him why he doesn't believe in science." At that point Perry politely ended the conversation, and moved on to the next person in the crowd.

It is unclear what Perry meant about Texas schools teaching both creationism and evolution, as teaching creationism in public schools is illegal. There have been several attempts to introduce "supplemental materials" into Texas curriculum that would express doubt over evolution, or to advance creationism under the name of "intelligent design." But these efforts have not come to any major fruition.
