Anthony Weiner got a public reminder yesterday that "Mother knows best."
As the Democratic mayoral hopeful blasted Mayor Bloomberg's educational policies yesterday, he was quietly corrected by his own mom.
After Weiner's first major education speech, the congressman told a West Side Chamber of Commerce breakfast that music, arts and language programs have been "decimated" under Bloomberg.
"You basically have one choice in school now in terms of a second language and that's Spanish," said Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn), a public school alum.
But his mom, Fran, a retired teacher whom he praised earlier, informed him that Latin is still taught in some schools.
After a back-and-forth, Weiner joked: "Please. I can't be heckled by my own mother."
Weiner criticized Bloomberg's top-down reshuffling of the school system, saying teachers deserve more autonomy and bigger salaries.
Weiner admitted Bloomberg recently called for a big boost in vocational training, but Weiner said a lack of emphasis on those programs has hurt kids.
He also criticized the disciplinary system, saying it can take 105 days to suspend a student from school.
"Anthony Weiner's education speech today was all politics and loaded with inaccuracies," said Bloomberg spokesman Robert Lawson.
City Hall officials singled out Weiner's claim that the mayor's Leadership Academy to teach principals is spending $250,000 per graduate.
Insiders said the real amount is about $150,000 - all of it paid for by private funds.
I wish Weiner looked more like the headless horseman.
Back when I was a kid, life was going swell.
Till something happened, blew every thing to hell.
That night my daddy stumbled in, all pale and weak,
Said "A woman up the block just gave birth to a geek."
Mom said, "Sell it to the circus, what the heck."
Dad said, "Nope, this one's a pencil neck.
And if there's one thing lower than a side show freak,
It's a grit eatin', scum suckin', pencil neck geek."
You see if you take a pencil that won't hold lead,
Looks like a pipe cleaner atached to a head,
Add a buggy whip body with a brain that leaks,
You got yourself a grit eatin', pencil neck geek.
Pencil neck geek, grit eatin' freak,
scum suckin', pea head with a lousy physique.
He's a one man, no gut, loosing streak.
Nothin' but a pencil neck geek.
Soon the geeks were poppin' up all over town.
You couldn't hardly sneeze without knockin' one down.
After a nice juicy steak, if you need a toothpick,
Just reach for a geek, they'll do the trick.
One day we cut one up for fish bait.
Learned our lesson just a little bit late.
Soon as the geek hit the drink, the water turned red.
Next day, sure enough, all the fish were dead.
Most any night you know where I can be found.
Yeah, stomping some geek's head into the ground.
So keep the faith 'cause in Blassie you can trust,
I won't give up 'til the last geek bites the dust.
They say, "these geeks come a dime a dozen."
I'm lookin' for the guy who's supplyin' the dimes.
Its gonna be real hard times for all of these
grit eatin', scum suckin', boot lickin', drop kickin', gut grindin',
nail bitin', glue sniffin', scab pickin', utt scratchin', egg hatchin', sleezy, smelly, pepper bellied, dirty, lousy, rotten, stinkin', freaks.
Nothing but a pencil neck geek
THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION!!!
CLASSY FREDDIE BLASSIE (RIP)
He was one of my favorite pro wrestling personalities, when I stilled followed the WWF.
Went to All Girls Catholic High school. Four years of Latin was mandatory. Also took 3 years of French. LOVED Latin!!
Trying to use our French in Canada was interesting.
My father had his own problems communicating with the locals when he traveled to Quebec, lo those many years ago.
Of course, this was back when he still spoke reasonably fluent French, so I don't think that it was exactly a language barrier, if you catch my drift.
-good times, G.J.P.(Jr.)
The good-looking Democrats are in movies or TV.
Anyone but Bloomberg.
One can hope! What a buffoon.
NY already has the 6th highest of the 50 states in average teacher salary at $53,017 per year and the 4th highest starting teacher salary at $35,259.
IMO I think he is more correctly classified in the category of dweeb, rather than dork or geek, although they belong to the same family.
Hey may be a dork, but he's one of the few in Gov't that recognizes what Saudi Arabia really is...a terrorist state and not an ally.
Maybe he can get her vote if he really campaigns hard.
I wonder if that fellow had the 'i' and 'e' legally reversed in his name.
LOL! Classy Freddie Blassie, the nature boy of wrestling. Seek out his LP "I Bite The Songs" - the truth of the universe is contained in the grooves!
