Even though unqualified zealots running education is right up my literary alley I haven’t written much about Mrs. Devos because quite frankly her short comings and lack of qualifications are common knowledge, and where I know most republican senators salivate at the words voucher and charters I figured there were a half dozen or so who wouldn’t vote for perhaps the most unqualified nominee of any type in the modern era.
I was concerned but I wasn’t super concerned until today that is when along party lines the Senate committee vetting her passed her to the entire senate for a vote and they did so even after allegations about plagiarism came to light.
I get it the right likes vouchers, charters and money, but to nominate somebody so unqualified and with so many questionable entanglements is an affront not just to education but decency. Shame.
And once again I have to ask, if plagiarism on top of everything else isn’t enough to disqualify her, then what would be?
On a side note, I almost felt bad for Lamar Alexander who said, since she really cares about kids she would make a great secretary of education, Is that litmus test to get the job? Since I have watched ever episode of Law and Order multiple times, if I paid enough, could I be a supreme court justice o attorney general? He permanently diminished himself to all but the most rabid conservatives and destroyed all future credibility is a single breath. This albatross of a nomination will be his legacy.
