Algebra, Al-Qaeda, what’s the difference?

24 February 2004

A few months ago, conservatives were lecturing us naughty left-wingers for our poor manners. It seems that liberals, by criticizing our Commander-in-Chief, are debasing public discourse in America, undermining the high standards set by Newt Gingrich and Ann Coulter.

So I guess it’s our fault that the US Secretary of Education called the NEA a “terrorist organization”. (The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the US, with 2.7 million members.) Perhaps we should send the NEA’s executive committee to Guantánamo. I’m sure the kids locked up there could use some teachers. They could start, of course, with some lessons in good manners.
