Remember the announcment from a couple of days ago by Eddie Davis (the teachers union’s head grammarian) that he would run for Superintendent of Public Instruction? Over at The Soup, Miss Dish adds a few more layers of irony than we could dig up in our original post.
The Red Clay Citizen was quick to point out the glaring typo in Eddie’s announcement. There is certainly an enjoyable paradox when grammatical errors befuddle candidates promising to improve public schools, but RCC missed the bonus fact that Davis is a former high school English teacher… for 30 years. Every kid that failed grammer can smirk.
As if that weren’t enough…
But wait, there’s more for the “do as I say, not as I do” category. Remember, Davis said the reason for NCAE’s decision to move up its gubernatorial endorsement was, "If we’re going to be worker bees, we can’t wait." But Davis is a taking a much more lackadaisical approach himself, telling the AP he doesn’t plan to step down from his president’s post to campaign. "The rigors of the campaign may cause me to take some leave" only in the weeks leading up to the May primary, he said. Davis also promised he wouldn’t use NCAE’s databases to contact its 70,000 members for politicking. Please.
Good luck with all that, Eddie. (S – u – p – e – r – i – n… where was I?)
