On the campaign trail, Perry can't keep straight on the distinction between creationism and creationism, er, creationism and intelligent design. Video here.
I don't know if this is right, but the last I had heard, the state had not yet managed to get creationism/intelligent design onto the curriculum. I guess that means that Perry told the kid that Texas was doing something illegal, which it would be if he wasn't just wrong about what's now taught in schools. Ignorance seems to be the cause of, and solution to, so many of Perry's problems. [Gawker confirms that this is right.]
