Jersey Barrier

Flipping through the channels last night I caught a segment on one of the cable yell shows (and was apparently also on the Today show this morning though I didn’t see that) about this Bush-bashing in the schools issue. The Righties are happily conflating the Jersey situation and the Colorado one to put forward the macro storyline that liberals are destroying the public schools while committing treason. Unfortunately, it seems like the Left is out of position to effectively respond because having championed this nut in CO and his “right” to free speech in the classroom, it’s now hard to pivot and defend — with more nuance — the teacher in New Jersey even though what he did is quite defensible.
