It's quite interesting to see people so quick to insult O'donnell... even though she's right.
... well, she's right about the Constitution; intelligent design IS creationism, and both are nonsense... but she got the Constitution right.
Here's the First amendment in it's entirety. Please pay close attention to THE FIRST WORD IN THE FREAKIN' AMENDMENT!!!
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
This, along with the 10th amendment, clearly makes the issue of religion in schools and religion in government a STATE issue.
Thus, since they're running for a seat in Congress, her statements were accurate.
