Damn. wish I could verify this. Anyone with a paid account at the Washington Post? (link is to the comment section at a Dallas paper, which has the qoute, at a poll that was successfully freeped, hehe)
Tonight on FoxNews they played a short clip of GHWB talking to a group of middle schoolers in one classroom. The video may have been available to see across the country but I never heard about it. More likely, it was shown on a network for 10 seconds on their nightly news. This constitutes the same as sending it out to all schools via the internet complete with DOE pre and post talk activity suggestions. /s
Every time the Dems mess up, usually by overreaching, they search the archives until they come up with something remotely the same and make an equivalence. I heard Mara Liaison do this tonight with truthers and birthers. Ted Turner did it in a 10 part series on the cold war (probably used in classrooms) between the soviet gulag and Kent State. It's infuriating. Republicans, instead of doing this, seem to always try to be "fair" and so mention that their side does it too, whatever egregious thing the Dems get caught doing.
