Our nomination for overheated rhetorical excess this week is Atlanta-based talker Neal Boortz, who went off on the evils of public school teachers, especially those bold enough to organize themselves into a professional group or union.
But we'll let Boortz speak for himself. You make the call:
[T]he single most dangerous entity, group of people in this country right now are teachers unions…. [T]hey do more damage to this country than all the drug pushers together…. If I had a button right now, two buttons—push this button and it gets rid of all the drug dealers; push this button, it get rid of the teachers unions—I'm getting rid of the teachers unions.
Teachers unions? We thought it was the gays. That Sally Kern lied to us!
