Even after the election members of the loony Right like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity continue to warn of the mysterious Barack Obama, the man with the funny name and the dangerous associations. Joining them after the election is education blogger Alexander Russo writing on the Huffington Post.
Russo has become the spokesman for those education Republicrats like Whitney Tilson and Joe Williams who have targeted Obama’s close education adviser, Linda Darling-Hammond. But he doesn’t just go after Darling-Hammond’s education views. He hints at something sinister. And he warns:
Whatever the outcome, it’s clear that education advocates who supported Obama because of his change agenda are frustrated and confused that Darling-Hammond’s name is even part of the discussion. What kind of an education President Obama will be remains a mystery for now.
Oooh. Obama. The mysterious other.
Update: Russo cries, “poor me. I’m so misunderstood.” Read his piece in the Huffington Post and decide if I misunderstood.
