Alterknit educashun polticks

In the alternate reality where pundits and talk-show hosts live, Barack Obama is not going to say Tuesday that students have a personal responsibility to work hard in school. Somehow this is indoctrination, or maybe unseemly politicking for all the 7-year-olds who will be voting in 2012. Though Richard Whitmire and many others are scratching their heads on this one, putative social conservatives evidently don’t want to echo the fundamentally conservative point Obama will make: put yourselves to work and get a stake in society. 

Do I really need to explain why the paranoid style of education politics is supremely nutty?
