So a MoveOn.org acolyte goes on an overheated rant in a classroom, comparing Bush to Hitler. And the conspiratorial right, sensing a non-existing trend to exploit, runs with it, claiming such comments are commonplace in our public schools. I bet George Soros is behind this somehow.
While I agree that the teacher is a dunderhead, this is an isolated incident, a minor story at best. But the right will continue beating it into the ground, and the left will, predictably, adopt Jay Bennish as a martyr. We'll probably see him sharing a podium with Cindy Sheehan before too long.
All this obscures a long-standing truth: most students think their teachers are losers, particularly when they look like this guy. Don't overestimate his impact on not-that-impressionable minds.
