Krugman destroyed, David Burge destroys Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman, from Iowahawk :
The point being, I suppose, is that unionized teachers stand as a thin chalk-stained line keeping Wisconsin from descending into the dystopian non-union educational hellscape of Texas. Interesting, if it wasn’t complete bullshit.
As a son of Iowa, I’m no stranger to bragging about my home state’s ranking on various standardized test. Like Wisconsin we Iowans usually rank near the top of the heap on average ACT/SAT scores. We are usually joined there by Minnesota, Nebraska, and the various Dakotas; Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire…
… beginning to see a pattern? Perhaps because a state’s “average ACT/SAT” is, for all intents and purposes, a proxy for the percent of white people who live there.
Mr, Krugman, your so-called economic arguments have been completely destroyed by an Internet humorist and wit. An apology and resignation are in order.
World’s highest price sex show, from Kara Spak, Chicago Sun-Times :
More than 100 Northwestern University students watched as a naked 25-year-old woman was penetrated by a sex toy wielded by her fiancee during an after-class session of the school’s popular “Human Sexuality” class.
The woman said she showed up at the Feb. 21 lecture in the Ryan Family Auditorium in Evanston expecting just to answer questions, but was game to demonstrate. The course’s professor on Wednesday acknowledged some initial hesitation, but said student feedback was “uniformly positive.”
Northwestern’s tuition is somewhere north of fifty thousand per year. For fifty thousand the street slut was the only one getting the shaft. Go to Harry Reid’s Nevada and do it rather than just watch and it will not cost your parents fifty thousand dollars a year.
Michelle Obama needs to butt out, from, Meghan Daum, Los Angeles Times :
A few weeks ago I was at the Denver airport when I overheard a conversation between two men sitting near me. They were eating some form of grab-and-go airport lunch when one man, between bites, suddenly raised his voice and called Michelle Obama something that can’t be printed in a family newspaper.
Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann accused Obama of trying to implement a “nanny state.” Sarah Palin gave her a ribbing on her reality show when, while searching for s’mores ingredients for a camping trip, she said, “This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who the other day said we shouldn’t have dessert.”
Oh, and then there’s that paragon of physical fitness, Rush Limbaugh, who suggested last week that the first lady “does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.”
Earth to Ms Daum, now consider this.
Rush Limbaugh have have been or may be fat. However Limbaugh does not purport to give diet advice to anybody.
On the other hoof, FLOTUS, Fat Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama if fat.
Fat people like Mrs. Obama should not be giving dietary advice to anybody but rather seeking it.
Mrs. Obama needs to get her fat butt our of our business.
