Phrasemongery galore!

First, we have the Texas Board of Education, mongering the history books. Then, we have an outraged pundit who seems to want us to think that the Texas Board of Education is making their decisions at Klan meetings. Nice one. Thanks for not helping at all. It seems far more likely that the Texas Board of Education is a group of in-over-their-heads amateurs making embarrassing calls on the basis of haste and ignorance.

Anyhow, two more tic marks in the bad-for-public-discourse column.  Here’s one on the good side: Chris Cillizza’s 5 Myths column in this coming Sunday’s Washington Post. We appear to be time traveling, reading a column about healthcare reform THREE DAYS INTO THE FUTURE! Cleverer and cleverer.
