Shorter Rick Perry

Texas Shuts Door on Millions in Race to the Top Education Grants:

Funding public schools doesn’t make any sense.

Actual Rick Perry: “We would be foolish and irresponsible to place our children’s future in the hands of unelected bureaucrats and special-interest groups thousands of miles away in Washington.”

Better, I suppose, to place their future in the hands of goofballs like Stephen Meyer and David Barton, handpicked by members of a body which has brought consistent dishonor to the state of Texas.

    Meanwhile, my alma mater (Rice University) has been trying to diversify away from a Texas-centric student body.

    I guess this solves that problem, in a sense.
