In a grim future of arrogant hyperbole, this Indiana legislator could well be our Emperor. It takes an overflowing amount of both for him to compare his petulant flight to Illinois to avoid the will of the electorate to soldiers sent to Afghanistan for fight in our stead. But, as you’ll see, he has no problem at all saying that very thing.
The applause you hear come from the trained seals of the teachers’ unions, who showed up to shield him from the derisive laughter that should have followed such a self-serving statement.
Well, derisive laughter and maybe some tar and feathers.
CORRECTION: I initially thought the legislator was a Fleebagger from Wisconsin. he’s really a Fleebagger from Indiana. Fixed.
