That damned program

What's Mallard raving about today?

School Vouchers, Barack Obama.

The Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Republican mouthpiece says the school vouchers program is working? God forbid anyone should question that!

I am reasonably certain that we have just finished reading the 2008 winner for the "Least Helpful Asterisk" Golden Ellipses.

Is it just me, or do his depictions get more and more racist?

Remember, Mallard is not racist. He says so.

I couldn't find this "evidence" beyond something with a graduation rate and a lot of people berating Barrack for not liking the school vouchers in being in the pockets of the teachers unions.

That being said, if my tax money was going into improving public schools AND vouchers, I'd be very upset. Especially since vouchers could end up in the hands of religious schools, something this government is NOT supposed to do. There's tax money for improving public schools. If it's not working, fire the guys in charge and hire new ones. Don't screw with education by forcing it to go private and compete.

For the sake of argument, let's say the school voucher program is working (and that the same end couldn't be reached by simply funding our public schools). So.......
we should keep the current Republican leadership in charge despite a war fought on false pretenses that has bankrupted our global credibility and stretched our military beyond its capability. Despite our backward-thinking energy policy, which was drafted by oil executives in a private meeting with our vice president, the former CEO of Halliburton. Despite an administration that was slower to deliver aid to victims of Katrina than to Georgia in the South Ossetian conflict. Despite massive rollbacks on our civil liberties, including the President's assertion that he can label any US citizen an "enemy combatant", then detain them indefinitely without ever charging them with a crime, much less ever giving them a fair trial........
because the DC school voucher system is working.
(ellipses emphasis mine)

Can't imagine how. That's the same drawing he's used for around six months now.
