Speechless
Judith Billings, candidate for Superintendent of Public Education in Washington demonstrates her commitment to excellence in education:
"Everybody does not need to be a math whiz. Everybody does not need to be a spectacular writer."

It should come as no surprise Billings opposes both choice and accountability in education. Please vote this November to keep her away from our children.

As long as it's open season on mottoes...
Can we sue the New York Times for neglecting to print so much of the news that's "fit to print?"

Projection
So Arnold went and called the California legislature a bunch of "girlie-men" at a rally, and now his the usual suspects are up in arms, accusing him of homophobia.   Which is interesting, because he didn't say anything at all about sexual orientation. 

Arnold may or may not be guilty of clinging to negative stereotypes of gays -- I'm guessing "not" but we have no information. His protesters, on the other hand, leap effortlessly from "girlie-men" to "homosexual," which speaks volumes about their prejudices and preconceptions.
