In the last couple of days, old Ricky-boy has surpassed my wildest expectation of idiocy.

First he said that Kennedy's famous speech on the firm separation of church and state "made me want to vomit." Uh-huh. So apparently the Constitution makes him nauseous. Lovely.

A bit later he said, "President Obama wants everybody in America to go to college, what a snob. There are good, decent men and women who work hard every day and put their skills to the test that aren’t taught by some liberal college professor. And trying to indoctrinate them."

Right, Rick. God forbid we engender the ambition to go to college and become, you know, all smart and stuff. (Especially women -- it's so hard to keep 'em barefoot and pregnant when they get theirselves an eddication. Why, next thing you know they'll be all radicalized, wantin' equal pay and access to family planning *gasp*)

He went on to say (which I happen to agree with) that people should have more access to non-four-year options, like vocational/technical skills. However, I expect he missed the part where Obama said that exact same thing, back in February 2009: "And so tonight, I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. This can be community college or a four-year school; vocational training or an apprenticeship."

Gawd, this man is moron. Mitt and his "couple of Cadillacs" isn't much better. But the plus side, it's looking more and more likely that Obama will win in 2012 :)

UGH. And the really, really scary part is that people agree with this. Then again, keep education out of reach and unaffordable, keep them intellectually isolated, and that's how you do it...

Exactly -- dig deep enough (ok, actually not very deep at all) and it becomes obvious it's all about control. Grrrrrr.

Santorum makes ME want to vomit. I'm an independent, but this guy is the stuff of middle-ages. *shudders*

People are idiots.

There was an article on the local paper yesterday about the local school district, some teacher pushing her/his own politics and religion on students and what should be done about it. The comments devolved into this huge 'liberal teachers are everywhere trying to indoctrinate our children' mess. Oh, and if you're conservative and out about it, you'll lose your job.

I don't think I had any clue what any of my teachers politics or religion was. I'm pretty sure you can't be fired for a political leaning. And, hell, Lawrence isn't as liberal as it was in our day anyway!

I'm kind of hoping Santorum gets the nod because Obama is a shoe in then. It's like the Republicans are trying to shoot themselves in their own feet with their options!

Yeah. Santorum is too right-wing even for a lot of Republicans.

I hear that one of tonight's primary states allows people to switch parties right there in the voting line, so bunches of Dems are showing up, switching, and voting for Santorum just to f**k with the GOP. How clever is that??
