The head of the National Education Association (NEA) has called for U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige to resign. Yesterday at a private meeting with Governors, Paige called the NEA, a "terrorist organization." Typical. "We demand this and we demand that." I think they will be surprised that Paige is a tough guy. His poor choice of words is a reflection of the fact that he is tired of being pushed around by the most powerful lobbying group in Washington.
I thought "Big Business" was the most powerful lobbying group in Washington? I mean, I keep hearing that from the Dems... :)
Yes, big business is actually shrewd enough to donate to both political parties. The NEA (I am a teacher and would never teach in a public school because of those radical nuts) donates nine out of every ten dollars to the Democrats and is clearly not a non-partisan group.
