I was pretty happy when Rod Paige resigned as Secretary of Education: he once referred to the NEA as “terrorists”, and under his superintendentship the city of Houston covered up dropout rates in an Enron-style fraud. Unfortunately, Bush got to choose his replacement, too.

It’s going to be a long four years…
