Is Our Secretary of Education a Moron?

Actually, the evidence isn’t decisive. Even Leo Strauss might have choked on celebrity Jeopardy. My main objection to this post on an unfriendly blog is that it doesm’t focus on the damage Margaret Spellings is doing to our accrediting associations and to higher education generally. I will say more about that later. Thanks to Ben B. for calling this post to our attention, which may be the beginning of a liberal/conservative coalition to do something about this schoolmarmish federal tyranny.

The Celebrity Jeopardy thing is weak, to be sure. But, policywise, Spellings is no good. No good at all. She’s Bush’s Terrel "Ted" Bell.

She’s worse than no good. Imagine what happens when a Democrat gets hold of the intrusive precedents she’s getting away with setting.
