Well, this is depressing. Via Daily Kos, I come across the following quotation:

Like every other man of intelligence and education, I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should be raised.

Some wacky contemporary Christian-basher like Richard Dawkins, right? Actually, way back in 1922, it appears that a U.S. president, in this case Woodrow Wilson, could get away with statements like that.

    What I find depressing in these cases is that most of these highly-educated and eloquent and contemporary people are mistaken about their support for Socialism or even Communism.

    If finding a president or major public figure that’s an “evolutionist”, see how hard it is finding one who’s both an evolutionist and and a classical liberal or libertarian!

    Sad, very sad…

    Hey, Woodrow was a pretty wacky fellow himself.

    Wasn’t Woodrow Wilson dead in 1922?

    No, he died in 1924, though he was no longer president by 1922.

    I had always assumed the multiple strokes he suffered at the end of his term killed him faster than that. I just got punked.
