#1 Oh those progressives! Touting their success in educating the masses and deriding her. So clever!

#2 I'll take the New Yorker's advice and "read something that means something."

#3 They really think they are witty and smart too.

Typical statist arrogance.

#5 Quack quack quack quack quack.

As they tut tut about, perhaps they should review a standardized test from 1970 to Generation Smartie making change from a $50 bill for a $16.38 charge and count the money back.

Pre-70's, like the Mercury program? I guess they had their mac-books to figure that all out.

How about the 1940's, any math going on there, or is that back in the paleo whole number era?

Probably all for the best. Imagine what would have happened if the Romans knew about math. Crazy.

Just stepping back here, this is a top-tier publication, and this is what they come up with? Aren't they supposed to be the Diego Velazquez of whit and humor? I mean, by all means, have a night on the town with the boys drinking Manhattans, but don't toss on a towel and tell me it is The Surrender of Breda.

#6 OK, it's funny as a one-liner. But not enough for all that horse-kicking.

But if it were true, Betsy would be giving the little Nork kids vouchers to attend school in Seoul which would annoy Pudge for the same reason school vouchers annoy the Democrats - because it frees an enslaved people from totalitarian control.
