The Discovery Institute has been engaged in a full-blown media extravaganza in building up to their press conference today to beat up on Iowa State University for their turning down astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez’s tenure application. After all that foreshadowing and build-up, what did they come up with? Some emails among ISU faculty who did discuss Gonzalez’s “intelligent design” creationism advocacy, and how it didn’t go in the plus column. Wow. That has to rank right up there with all-time great denouements like Geraldo Rivera’s live TV special, The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vault.
