I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

Heckuva Job, Cathie!

Couldn't happen to a nicer gal or a nicer mayor (via Leonie Haimson):
A NY1/Marist poll released last night showed Black with a shockingly low 17% job approval rating, but Bloomberg chose to look on the bright side.
“Look, I think the thing that came out of that poll is that the majority of the people are happy with the schools. The question isn’t what a poll says, it’s what the real world says,” Hizzoner spun, according to Lemire's transcript. (The poll showed 53% of public school parents rating them 'good' or 'excellent.')

Are people finally sick and tired of autocrats and billionaires running our schools? Let's hope.
