Sore Losers

Ed Brayton has a post up concerning the history of the Dover trial and the Discovery Institute's involvement both before and after the case. As Ed shows, their attitude changed dramatically between the point where they had hopes of victory (or at least, hopes of a non-devastating defeat), and the beating they took in the decision. Since then they've been trying to re-write history, and have engaged in an unbelievable amount of whining over the case (while at the same time trying to downplay its importance) and angry personal attacks against the judge.

The DI's latest missive, which Ed ably dissects, comes from Logan Gage. Those of you who remember the "balanced panel" in South Carolina will recognize Gage as the DI representative sent there to hand out propaganda.
