Spellings, the Cash Cow

Margaret is on the road again, this time in Dallas to spew the phony party-line rhetoric about caring for black children, while promising to the faith based fundamentalists part of the unregulated $1,000,000,000 a year that nows goes out mainly to private tutoring firms:

"The U.S. government, of course, is never going to get into the business of worship. But we certainly can and do and must support what President Bush calls the armies of compassion, the people who are saving lives, the people who are doing our most important social-service work."

"If you want to run a high-quality secular tutoring program, we're not going to ask you to change your identity or take your crosses off the walls. We're just going to ask you, 'How are you serving the children?'"

Onward Christian voting soldiers!
