I generally try to ignore most of what Phyllis Schlafly says or writes because it is so absurdly illogical, biased, and condescending that it defies any attempt to understand what point she is trying to make. But everyone once in a while she writes something that you just have to stare at in disbelief, such as her latest column innocently wondering if Barack Obama will name William Ayers as his Secretary of Education:
Will William Ayers be secretary of education in a Barack Obama administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before making their choice for president on Nov. 4.
After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and professor Ayers’s expertise is training teachers and developing public school curriculum. That’s been his mission since he gave up planting bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers.
Is an appointment to the U.S. Department of Education his next career advancement? Is Ayers’s transformative public school curriculum the kind of “change” Obama will bring us?
Just last week, Schlafly was crowing that she and her anti-ERA allies “invented the pro-family movement” .. and that pretty much tells you all you need to know about the “pro-family movement.”
