On Oct 21st AEI hosted an event called
Should Schools Teach Intelligent Design? "
Well I was looking at the online transcripts and saw the link to the video. It appears they taped the entire event and you can watch it all online!
(Click on the Video link of course)
Obviously this was put on well before th Dover ruling. During the final questions and answers, the tit for tat exchange between the TMLC and the Ministry of Truth (Disco) is well worth reading/watching.
Here is the low down:

Directions to AEI
What should public schools teach about life’s origins? This debate erupted anew over the summer after President George W. Bush and Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) endorsed the teaching of intelligent design (ID)—the theory that intelligent causes are responsible for the origin of the universe and of life in all its diversity. Proponents of teaching alternatives to evolution are now lobbying state legislatures and pressing school districts to incorporate ID into science curricula. Alarmed scientists and educators see ID as a disguised form of creationism and a direct attack on the scientific method and critical thinking. Is intelligent design religion or science? What should we teach in schools? Would the teaching of intelligent design violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause? Panelists at this day-long AEI conference will discuss these and other questions.
