GOP: Still The Party Of Stupid

In commenting on the recent events in Cincinnati, GOP group-thinker Rush Limbaugh dropped this little bit of science on us:
By the way, you know there's another factor in this, Snerdley? A lot of people think that all of us used to be apes. Don't doubt me on this. A lot of people think that all of us used to be gorillas. And they're looking for the missing link out there. The evolution crowd. They think we were originally apes. I've always -- if we were the original apes, then how come Harambe is still an ape, and how come he didn't become one of us?
I remember hearing this "argument" way back in 5th grade (and for me that would've been in the mid-70s).

The correct answer to this argument is this:

Gorillas did not evolve into humans.  They share a common ancestor but that was millions of years ago.  So asking why gorillas exist and didn't evolve into "us" is remarkably absurd. 

But none of that actually matters to the party of stupid.

I would blame the Science education in public schools.
I remember illustrations like these in text books.

I don't know of anyone who is defending the actions of the protesters in San Jose, and if you're confused by that evolution chart, then your knowledge of of the subject hasn't progressed beyond the first-grade level.
