Hillary: Mutnemom Forever?

She's always on the ropes now.

(Continued from Page 45)


"Kristen," the NEA's Worst Enemy? Here's Ben Smith's 2006 New York Observer piece on the probable next governor of New York. OK, so there have been a few little fibs on his official bio. And he aims to please everyone, Clinton style. There's also this:

A prominent advocate of publicly funded vouchers for private schools, Clint Bolick, has given [now-Lt. Gov. David] Paterson money and describes him as a "very good friend of the school-choice movement," ... [E.A.]

Could be interesting. ... Also, I'm a sucker for gratuitous candor, which seems to be another Paterson characteristic. ... [This isn't a kf item. It's a parody of a kf item. "N.E.A. SUFFERS SETBACK IN NEW YORK NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST."-ed. First, I'm too tabloidy, Now you don't like the policy angle! So unfair. I feel like Michael Chertoff.] ...

Update: Yes, Spitzer was receptive to charter schools and even private school tuition deductions. But "Paterson "is even more hardcore about school reform and not a favorite of the teachers' unions," reports Eduwonk. "[H]is pick as LG caused [the unions] some consternation but was tempered because it was only LG ...." Heh! ...  5:11 P.M. link



Have you noticed that the Center for American Progress' "new" approach to illegal immigration--"We must require illegal immigrants to become legal, and reform the laws so this can happen"--bears an eerie resemblance to the drug policy of erstwhile presidential candidate George C. Papoon?

A Papoon Presidency would eliminate all illegal drugs in the first week of its administration.

No American would be using illegal drugs under George G. Papoon!"
