Alert blogger Russell Mann posted a little gem on the plight of a public school teacher in Monmouth Junction, NJ. Seems she had a little bulletin board going with the theme of "government" including an American flag, a copy of the Declaration of Independence, and pictures of past presidents...and our current president. That last item, when she refused to add a picture of John Kerry as well, got her removed from the school! Do these sacks of hammers masquerading as human beings have a time-machine in the janitor's closet? Last time I checked Kerry wasn't a president (yet). In an even more shining example of the duplicity and malice aforethought of the extreme Left, the school officials are denying that she has been fired, to which Ms. Pillai-Diaz replied "...what does it mean then when your boss asks you to hand over the keys and kicks you out of the building?" Hm?
Michelle Malkin (who has links to the latest updates on this fiasco) says, "Will the Democratic political appendage known as the teachers' union defend this rank-and-file teacher or put its fatcat union leaders' partisan interests first? And would there be any question about where the union would have stood if this had been 1992 or 1996 and the teacher in question had been reprimanded for displaying a photo of President Clinton during the campaign season?" I don't think it takes a certified genius to answer that one, which is appalling in itself.
