Washington Post hit piece on Texas school standards

Here is a good rebuttal to the Washington Post’s propagandizing against the new school curriculum standards in Texas. Another day, another effort to stir up hysteria against some policy that goes against the liberal grain. Maybe Los Angeles and San Francisco will add Texas to their list of states to boycott.

AP decries “far-right” influence in Texas school textbooks

This has to be one of the most biased “news” items ever from the AP, and that’s saying something. It begins: “A far-right faction of the Texas State Board of Education succeeded Friday in injecting conservative ideals into social studies, history and economics lessons that will be taught to millions of students for the next …

Don’t teach kids, because “they’re going to do it anyway”

There’s this meme developing among liberals that is so stupid it makes our head hurt, but they seem to think it makes sense. From Politico: Sarah Palin’s personal story, and her views on personal morality, are at the core of her politics and of why she was nominated, and why she’d energized the conservative base. …

John Edwards: “I’m going to be honest with you — I don’t know a lot…”

Wow. We knew John Edwards is oily, disingenuous, and phony to the core, but we did not know he is also apparently a real ignoramus. Via the Captain’s Quarters blog: “I’m going to be honest with you — I don’t know a lot about Cuba’s healthcare system,” Edwards, D-N.C., said at an event in Oskaloosa, …

Another abusive, out-of-control prosecutor

Via The Oregonian: The two boys tore down the hall of Patton Middle School after lunch, swatting the bottoms of girls as they ran — what some kids later said was a common form of greeting. But bottom-slapping is against policy in McMinnville Public Schools. So a teacher’s aide sent the gawky seventh-graders to the …

“¡Racista!”, They Cried

Pavlovian cries of “racism” from the unthinking left are as surprising as the Sun rising every morning, but they’re still irritating. A classic example comes at the expense of Newt Gingrich, who recently apologized, en español, for some ill-chosen words about English immersion vs. bilingual education. Mr. Gingrich initially said: “We should replace bilingual education …

John Kerry: US troops in Iraq not smart, uneducated

Proving once again what a genius he is when it comes to political acumen, John Kerry seems to have insulted all the U.S. troops in Iraq by implying they’re uneducated and not “smart”. You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make …

CA legislature votes to invade people’s private lives in schools

Remember the days when President Clinton was impeached for lying under oath in a sexual harassment lawsuit, and the Democrats kept telling everyone the government had no business “in people’s bedrooms”? (Who knew the president slept in the Oval Office?) And remember how during the debates about whether the government should redefine marriage – a …

NY Times poll: 79% of respondents are economic illiterates

The New York Times reports on another poll showing President Bush’s approval ratings on all fronts to be in the toilet. No news there. What really stood out in the article was summarized in the opening paragraph: Americans have a bleaker view of the country’s direction than at any time in more than two decades, …

Hoo’s Teeching Hour Stoodents Ingles

From the Houston Chronicle (via Drudge), we have a story of a high school teacher encouraging students to rally in support of illegal immigration. But that’s not the bad part of the story: Rios, who still retains his duties as an English-as-a-second-language teacher, was copying and distributing a flier that read: “We gots 2 stay …
