When Public Education is Neither

This one comes via Weasel Zippers, who has nothing to say except for “So dumb, so, so, so, so dumb.” Here’s the story:

A Michigan elementary school is defending its decision to confiscate a third-graders batch of homemade cupcakes because the birthday treats were decorated with plastic green Army soldiers.

Casey Fountain told Fox News that the principal of his son’s elementary school called the cupcakes “insensitive” — in light of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

“It disgusted me,” he said. “It’s vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.”

Now, I like to think of myself as more of a wordsmith than Weasel Zippers could ever hope to be, so I’d like to just say…

So dumb, so, so, so, so dumb.
