You might already have seen this earlier today, thanks to the Drudge link, but it still bears commenting on:
In addressing criticism of the Common Core national education standards, a panelist at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, said critics were a “tiny minority” who opposed standards altogether, which was unfair because “the children belong to all of us.”
My initial reaction to this story was a simple f-bomb, which doesn’t make for much of a blog post — so I didn’t bother. My second reaction just below, isn’t exactly a ray of sunshine.
For all their supposed centrism, Podesta is an hold Clinton hand. If there are still any centrist Democrats, disappointed with Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom’s policies, who think that Hillary might prove some kind of reprieve — think again. The very best that can be hoped for under Clinton II is the absolute cementing in place of the absolute worst of the Wiggleroom Era. At the point, the national GOP might as well merge with the Democrats to reform the “Democratic-Republicans.” Only instead of pursuing a Jeffersonian philosophy of maximum liberty and minimum government, we’d be getting the obverse.
And I don’t know how to stop it, short of Let. It. Burn.
