'texas miracle' basically bogus bush bull
CalPundit, Tom Spencer and Mark Kleiman have the skinny on revelations that figures on Texas education performance -- figures that supported the push for Bush's so-called education bill, not to mention the nomination of Houston school superintendent Rod Paige for Secretary of Education -- were (surprise, surprise!) fudged. Once again, the only defense against Paige's mendacity is incompetence. In either case, he should be shown the door pronto.
