McCain Too, But Who's Counting?

The Arizona Daily Star reports that John McCain supports presenting "all points of view" on origins to students:
On Tuesday, though, he sided with the president on two issues that have made headlines recently: teaching intelligent design in schools and Cindy Sheehan, the grieving mother who has come to personify the anti-war movement.

McCain told the Star that, like Bush, he believes "all points of view" should be available to students studying the origins of mankind.

The theory of intelligent design says life is too complex to have developed through evolution, and that a higher power must have had a hand in guiding it.

Seems like the reporter assumes his statement means teaching intelligent design. He might have only meant that he supported presenting all points of view on the theory of evolution and/or the evidence for and against evolution.

I count Santorum, Brownback, Frist and McCain as Senators publicly supporting teaching the controversy. Is anyone keeping a complete list? Any Senators or Congressmen saying that the scientific evidence and arguments that would tend to disprove evolution should not be taught?
