A few minutes ago I finished writing a long entry about the junior Puppet named Chad Adams who is holding down the fort this Friday at the John Locke Puppetshow. Adams has written a silly little piece of nothing about how great South Carolina is because it has a 6% tax rate, while mean old North Carolina has a whopping 7% tax rate to do the "same job." Yeah right.
I had even assembled a boatload of US Census data to underscore the lunacy of Adams' claim. For example, NC is 22nd in teacher pay, while SC is 27th. And the NC high school graduation rate is 67% while the SC rate is 53%. I even had data for infant mortality, physicians per capita, violent crime rates (SC is highest in the nation) and more.
And then the site somehow logged me out and I lost everything. So sad. But I did manage to salvage my closing paragraph:
I'm glad the Puppets continue spewing forth this kind of nonsense. Because with every lame "report" and every instance of intellectual dishonesty, they solidify their reputation as ideologues, leftovers from the heyday of the Party of Greed. Keep it coming, Puppets. You're ever-so-surely working your way toward irrelevance.
