It's amazing that so many Americans are willing to line up behind a platform of "cut special deals for the very wealthy while demonizing teachers." It's astonishing that this actually works.
I very much agree with your post. Of all people, taking issue with teachers seems to be a perfect example of applying the most bizarre priorities. How can we take seriously what this people say when on the same breath they demonize teachers and praise the Koch's purity of intentions?
