McCain is really going after Obama for the $3 million he asked for to replace a projector at a science planetarium in Chicago. Will any brave teacher stand up in defense of overhead projectors?
For the record: CBS News says the projector was never actually funded, and the AP reports that what Obama wanted was to overhaul an entire theater system, including a replacement of a projector that was 40 years old.
One more thing on this subject: McCain is now saying his proposed spending freeze would exempt defense programs, veterans affairs — and “some other vital programs.” Is education vital?
