Comparing teachers to the Wall Street dickwads who almost brought our country down

As someone mentioned yesterday in the comments section, Jon Stewart had a great piece the other night on the hypocrisy of the right wing pundits who, just a month ago were talking about how families making over $250,000 a year were just barely scraping by, and now claim that teachers, who make a fraction of that, are too well paid. How is it that families can barely make ends meet at $250,000 one minute, and the very next we’re talking about how teachers making $50,000 are making too much? I think it’s a great question.

    The biggest argument against us has been the fact that public money pays my salary. But since the government bailout, that argument doesn’t hold as much weight as it did.
    And sitting there saying that a family of 4 with college tuition to pay can’t make it on a quarter of a million dollars is offensive at best and riot-inducing at worst. Tell ya what, I’ll trade my salary for a salary of $250k and then I’ll get back to you on how I’m doing.

    Taters, why do you not acknowledge me? It’s driving me mad. I want to be friends. You sound like a very dynamic individual. I’m picturing you having the build of a lumberjack. I feel like the young Alan Greenspan must have felt the first time he met Ayn Rand. I feel alive for the first time in my life. Please don’t continue to ignore me. It’s only intensifying the throbbing of my heterosexual loins. Let’s go and beat up gays and then make love.

    If you guys ever do get together for your own private lemon party, you’ve got to promise me that you’ll send a work-safe photograph for me to post.
