Perry Is Right

I'll be honest.  I had my face in my hands when I watched the YouTube video this morning of Governor Rick Perry committing hara-kiri  (ritual suicide) in last night's debate.  It was that painful.

But one thing he got right before he stumbled on that third federal agency he as president would eliminate is the second federal "agency" he'd eliminate: the Department of Education.

Why?  Besides the fact that the DOE spends billions each year yet educates no one?

It - the U.S. Department of Education - deems it necessary - and is its proper role - to investigate Penn State's sexual abuse scandal.

In Washington, the U.S. Department of Education said it has launched an investigation into whether Penn State failed to report incidents of sexual abuse on campus, as required by federal law.

The Department of Education is responsible for the education of nobody. But considers it to be its responsibility to investigate charges of sexual abuse.

For the love of God, kill it. Put a stake in its heart and send it back into the nether regions.
