When you get on the Waiting for Superman email list like I did, you get an uninterrupted supply of propaganda, with headlines, stories, and pics like the one above (slightly altered) of Eli Broad's poisonous puppet, Michelle Rhee, in one her most Hitlerian poses, complete with backlighting spots.

Here a few clips from an AP story by Ben Nuckols in September on the wreckage that Rhee left behind in DC with the corporate reform schoolers' teacher evaluation scheme based on test scores:
