Daily Must-Reads

There was a stand-off between teachers unions and a superintendent in a Rhode Island school that was an abysmal failure. The union rejected the supe's plans, which included 25 minutes extra work per day, eating lunch with the students occasionally, and other such horrendous measures. Her response?  You're all fired.  Sweet.

The endless stupidity redux (language warning, but worth it).

Putting together a new set of principles like the 1990s Contract With America is kind of a popular thing to do on the Right right now, but the only conservative principles we need can be found in the Constitution.

Senator Obama vs. President Obama: to hold or not to hold...

The Palins counter the new attack on Trig.

China dumps U.S. debt; Japan is now the #1 owner of American federal irresponsibility.  The good news: Japan is a much closer ally than China. The bad news: Japan has already gone through (the "lost decade") exactly where Obama is taking us now...so how will they react?

Heartburn: a new poll shows 52% think Obama does not deserve a second term; 63% think Congress should retire, too. Oh, by the way, that's in a CNN poll!  This is worse than when the GOP swept power in 1994.

Obama vs. Obama: Too much food, or too little?

Trump: take back Gore's junk 'science' Nobel!
