WE WERE just watching the second part of Sean Hannity’s interview of Sarah Palin on the Fox News Network. He asked her about teaching creationism. She said that as the daughter of a science teacher she strongly appreciated science, and wanted evolution taught in science class. She impressed us as being quite definite about this. (That’s how we recall it.)
Not much else was said on the topic. Hannity didn’t probe her about what she said back in 2006, which we reported here: Sarah Palin: Creationist? Nor was Sarah asked about her personal beliefs. It was all about education in science class.
We assume the interview transcript will be posted on the Fox website, perhaps tomorrow. When it’s available, we’ll post the relevant excerpt. For the moment, this is all we can report about it.
The transcript is now at the Fox site: Gov. Palin on ‘Hannity & Colmes,’ Part 2:
HANNITY: Did you only want to teach creationism in school and not evolution?
PALIN: No. In fact, growing up in a school teacher’s house with a science teacher as a dad, you know, I have great respect for science being taught in our science classes and evolution to be taught in our science classes.
It’s not much, but it’s all we have so far. For us, the jury is still out on this one.
