So. It seems that those commies out in Utah and Virginia decided that No Child Left Behind was not for them. Utah managed to reject the pieces of legislation that were problematic for them, but Virginia's appeal for a waiver was denied. Those states-rights Republicans and their demands that all schools meet federal guidelines.
Sorry, but you know that a Republican policy is beyond bad when not even Utah and Virginia will toe the party line on it.
Meanwhile, though I'm not usually the type to link to a blog just for the witty comments, there is a thread going on at Atrios right now mocking John Gibson's assertion on Fox News that Sadaam was somehow behind the Oklahoma City Bombing. So far the commenters have also fingered Sadaam for:
-Killing the radio star
-Stealing the number 7
-Writing the screenplay for Gigli
-Being the fifth Beetle
-Assassinating Franz Ferdinand
Ah, good times.
While I'm doing the blogaround thing, I also point you to the brilliant captioning of Norbizness. Do it for the banjo getaway music alone.
