Daddy, Will McCain Start Wars?

From James Lileks:

When I picked (G)Nat up from the bus stop, she was worried; conversation on the ride home had turned to politics. Daddy Henry says John McCain will start wars. And he says Barack Obama will make sure there are never any wars. Is that true?

The class took a poll, and Barack won, so the Super Challenge Cursive Word this week is Barack Obama. Also Washington and Lincoln. Before you put this down to the GODLESS PUBLIC SCHOOLS, the teacher had a son in Iraq, her husband is a former peace officer, and she leads the class in reading Churchill, aloud. So there.

So? This is still a fine example of propaganda in our schools, passing as, in this case, history lessons. In my day, they passed of “Earth-Day” as science.
