The canonization of Michelle Rhee continues with this month's cover of Reason magazine.* Peter Bagge illustrates Rhee as a superhero carrying a school bus; AFT president Randi Weingarten is chasing her, wearing purple and bearing green kryptonite. It seems modeled after the classic Golden Age Superman/Luthor iconography, as opposed to the Modern age version of the characters in which Lex Luthor is a Saville Row-clad industrialist.
Perhaps more importantly the feature is by Katherine Mangu-Ward, and it's sidebar'd by interviews with education reformers and Jeb Bush.
