Hmm, what's that about? So I click on the link (try it yourself), and I read this:
I think teachers save more lives every year than doctors. I think teachers protect more people's rights every day than most lawyers will in their careers. I don't think that there is anything society does which is more important than moving our next generation forward. So, to me, teachers deserve to be among the best paid professionals in a society.
They also need to be among the best trained, with ongoing in-service training as a part of every schedule, just as it is for doctors.
What's well paid? Well, Republicans and right-wing Democrats claim that$250,000 per year in salary is "just middle class" and that group cannot pay more taxes. So, if that's true, $250,000 seems a fair annual salary for a veteran teacher (in New Jersey, according to Governor Chris Christie, this figure is $400,000).Chris Christie is linking to this? Approvingly?
Later in the post:

thinks you are overpaid
To see what brought this on, I clicked through to Rand Paul's tweets to see what Christie was responding to. It's obviously a parody site, although Paul is so crazy, I will admit it took me a few seconds to realize this is all a joke:
So it looks like Christie's tweeter got pwned. Your tax dollars at work. Next time, try reading before you post.
