What a Goober! (a rant)

Jay Bennish

I'm sure everyone knows this story by now. This teacher was suspended for his classroom rant that compared President Bush with Hitler. Sure, everyone has freedom of speech, but as we've already talked about here in the past, there are limits to that freedom. And we must recognize that teachers have to be especially careful in what they present to young and impressionable minds.

But mainly my problem is with all the liberals who have previously alluded to Hitler when talking about Bush. Come on, now. Really. These very same people have talked at length about how DUMB they think Bush is. But NOW, they have decided that he's really a brilliant and evil dictator in disguise who will in the span of time between now and the next election completely overthrow our government and establish a totalitarian regime like Hitler's Germany. People! You can't have it both ways! Forget your silly Hitler comparisons and go back to criticizing Bushisms like 'misunderestimated'. That's a whole lot funnier.

As much as I believe W is the Son of Satan incarnate, I would never make the Hitler comparison...perhaps being Jewish I'm a little sensitive to that type of comparison.

pil, thanks! I just laughed so hard that I almost farted. lol

mr g, I hope my making light of the comparison hasn't offended you. I don't think Bush could be Hitler if he really tried.

suzie, thanks!

cip, okay, that's better! lol
