More Vegetarian Conspiracy Theories!

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Julie Underwood and Julie F. Mead go vegetarian conspiracy theory in the pages of Phi Delta Kappan.

To paraphrase David Cameron, I refer the gentle ladies to the reply I made some moments ago, with the only postscript being that the center-left also has an organization of state legislators that proposes model legislation.

ALEC does good work, but if the Julies are looking for someone to blame for the recent ALEC surge, they ought to put President Obama, Senator Reid and former Speaker Pelosi at the top of their list.

After all, no one forced them to ignore the obviously strongly held and revealed preferences of the American people on the health care bill, thus leading to the 2010 election results. They chose to incur the wrath of the American people of their own free will, leading to a down-ballot nightmare for Dems.

P.S….just to encourage a little more crypto-paranoia: who are these mysterious ALEC people?

    “We might have an opening at the poseur level”?

    Can satire be transcendental? I think, clearly, “yes”. Perhaps ALEC ought to consider promoting an “all-Simpsons” curriculum?
