"A Stealth Creationist Theory" Which Is Neither Stealth Nor Creationist: Discuss!

Stealth: the act or action of proceeding furtively, secretly, or imperceptibly
Pronunciation: 'stelth
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English
stelthe; akin to Old English stelan to steal

Richard Brookhiser's recent TIME magazine article "Matters of Morality" is just lovely in its description of intelligent design:

In 2005 Bush said that both intelligent design (a stealth creationist theory) and evolution ought to be taught in schools.
Wow. First of all, ID is not creationism--and no one is more vociferously insistent about this than the major creationist organizations like Answers In Genesis. We've heard this charge before. But stealth?

Stealth...like black helicopter stealth? I guess we better take all of our pro-ID websites down. Michael Behe better round back up the quarter million copies of Darwin's Black Box that he sold.

I guess Brookhiser didn't get the memo about Discovery Institute becoming one of the most cited think tanks in the country, either.

How does a respectable magazine get away with such a description--which is as biased as it is false?
