Your tax dollars at work...

Neal Boortz tells the story of Zach Richardson, a Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. Sgt. Richardson was invited to speak to the 6th grade class which had written him letters while he was serving in Iraq. When he arrived at the school, the principal overruled the teacher and promptly and unceremoniously UNinvited Sgt. Richardson, citing "regard for the safety and welfare of our children."

To a lefty, I'm sure the principal's bizarre explanation makes some sort of sense, as if Sgt. Richardson might reasonably be expected to whip out a live grenade or an M-16 and toss it to a 6th grader. To normal people, of course, the principal's explanation makes no sense at all. Lefties show up on the Sunday talk shows defending idiots like this and then wonder why normal people think lefties are completely out-of-touch. Some of us realize that this idiot principal will most certainly keep her job and will probably get a raise and/or award from the local school board and teachers' union for her amazing act of heroism.
