Does "conservative" and "tea party" mean the same thing? The writers at Education Week appear to want readers to think so. In an article titled, "Tea partiers playing a role in some school board races," Ed Week identifies Wake County as the "best known example" of the tea party movement's involvment in school board politics. Of course, do not ask them for evidence. They ain't got it.
Though difficult to quantify, the same forces that swept conservative candidates into office on the congressional and state levels appear to be working their way down to some local races.
Did you get that? The title of the piece declares that tea partiers are playing a role in school board races, but the involvement of the tea party cannot be quantified (unless you, I don't know, polled voters in these areas). Furthermore, there are similar "forces" that are "working their way down" to school board races. What are these magical forces and do they have anything to do with midi-chlorians?
