Ted Frank was at the speech that Justice Scalia gave at AEI the other day. Note the contrast between his description of the event and how the AP covered it. You know, it's quite illuminating to see how poorly AP covers some stories because it is their version that will appear all over the country.
And Hillary Clinton has gone around the bend in her aversion to school vouchers.
"First family that comes and says 'I want to send my daughter to St. Peter's Roman Catholic School' and you say 'Great, wonderful school, here's your voucher,'" Clinton said. "Next parent that comes and says, 'I want to send my child to the school of the Church of the White Supremacist ...' The parent says, 'The way that I read Genesis, Cain was marked, therefore I believe in white supremacy. ... You gave it to a Catholic parent, you gave it to a Jewish parent, under the Constitution, you can't discriminate against me.'"Yeah, like we don't have acrimony in our government-financed public schools. And no school that preached violence could receive public money in any voucher plan that has been proposed.
As an adoring, if somewhat puzzled, audience of Bronx activists looked on, Clinton added, "So what if the next parent comes and says, 'I want to send my child to the School of the Jihad? ... I won't stand for it."
The former first lady said that vouchers would also accentuate divisions, singling out government-financed Protestant and Catholic schools in Northern Ireland and similar arrangements in the Netherlands as examples of poorly functioning systems.
