Good News ... Sort of
From the Texas Freedom Network:
The Texas Senate today failed to confirm Don McLeroy as chairman of the State Board of Education. The 19-11 vote fell short of the two-thirds majority needed for confirmation. Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller is releasing the following statement:That's the good news. The bad news is the rumor that Gov. Rick (The South Will Rise Again) Perry is considering the equally lunatic Cynthia Dunbar to replace McLeroy and, if I understand correctly, whoever Perry appoints will not face confirmation for another two years.
"Watching the state board the last two years has been like watching one train wreck after another. We had hoped that the Legislature would take more action to put this train back on the tracks, but clearly new leadership on the board was a needed first step. The governor should know that parents will be watching closely to see whether he chooses a new chairman who puts the education of their children ahead of personal and political agendas."
BTW - that picture you use of ex-chairman McLeroy freaks me out.
Heh. A little secret ... crop a photo of anyone's face that tight and you will make them look a little sinister or insane. Of course, if they are sinister or insane to begin with ...
