February 11, 2005 - Teachers and Treason

Hello Thinkers!

I have seen many news stories in the past that leave me utterly speechless, but I cannot remember being this stunned by what appears to be a trend in the headlines today. What in the hell is up with all these SMOKIN', blonde haired, 20-something teachers doing the moaning mambo (oh, excuse me - "raping") their teenage students?? And even more importantly, where were they when I went to school?? My primary and secondary learning institutions doubled as the penultimate resting place for every penguin-raisin in upstate NY. At St. Edmunds, the nuns fell asleep in class more often than the students - no lie.

Between Mary Kay Letourneau, Debra Lefave, and now Pamela Turner, these teenage kids are living a life even Hugh Heffner can only dream of. Granted their mugshots may not be flattering, and highway-orange is a difficult color to match eye shadow with, but the perp walks these temptresses of tutelage make are more like a runway strut for the Miss Pedophilia competition. I don't imagine any of these boys are kicking them out of the bunk bed for spilling Juicy-Juice.,2933,146797,00.html

These women, unlikely to be hired again as teachers, can probably find gainful, post-penitentiary employment with the CIA as 'terrorist torture specialists'. Although they might be over-qualified.

Maybe I'm just bitter. But at least I'm not as bitter as civil rights attorney, Lynne Stewart. It seems Ms. Stewart will be living the socialist dream of a state-funded lifestyle, with all the trappings. In case you missed it, she was recently convicted of sending messages to associate terrorists from her client, a radical Egyptian sheik named Omar Abdel-Rahman.

Abdel-Rahman was convicted of conspiracy to bomb several sites in New York, including federal office buildings and the Lincoln and Holland tunnels that run between NYC and New Jersey. Apparently some of Omar's charm rubbed off on Ms. Stewart. She is quoted as saying during her trial, "To rid ourselves of the entrenched, voracious type of capitalism that is in this country that perpetuates sexism and racism, I don't think that can come nonviolently."

(WARNING!! If you follow the link above, it includes a photo of Ms. Stewart - who has a face that a case of beer and a kilo of Viagra dust couldn't cure. Do not say you weren't forewarned.)

Now, I'm not 100% sure what the "voracious type of capitalism...that perpetuates sexism and racism" she is speaking of, but if I have to pick, Regis - I'll say "D. Islam," and that's my final answer.

A Reuters article posted immediately following her conviction described Ms. Stewart as "a defender of the poor and unpopular."

(WARNING!! This link also features a picture of Ms. Stewart!)

Nice job by Reuters. I wonder how Stewart would have been described if their NY office was on Omar's hit list.

I find it interesting how articles like this make the newswire rather quickly. Yet other equally interesting news moves like molasses, if at all. You know - really interesting stuff, like the news chief at CNN claiming that he knew of a dozen journalists in Iraq who were *targeted and killed* by the US military. This appears to be the unsubstantiated claim by Eason Jordan at the World Economic Forum gathering in Davos, Switzerland, on January 27th. Funny, I didn't hear about this from Dan bin Rather, did you? A search at never mentions Jordan except for an email buried in Dick Meyer's feedback section.

Good luck finding it! I will not even waste my time looking on CNN's site. I only saw this on TV news for the first time yesterday on FoxNews, yet it has been the buzz of blogs like Powerline, Littlegreenfootballs, and MichelleMalkin among others for well over a week.

Think about it. A top exec at CNN announces to an international community, with no evidence, at a major economic forum, that the US military is making a practice of targeting journalists in Iraq for execution - and the MSM is giving him a complete pass. Yet they slam Rumsfeld for saying that we go to war with the army we have, not the one we want.

Even screaming liberals Rep. Barney Frank(D-MA) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), who were in attendance, were outraged. Some papers like the Miami Herald and the Washington Post are starting to pick up the story. Most of them require an online subscription, but here's one that doesn't:

Jordan has been feverishly backpedaling like the dog that bit the beehive. How CNN can state they have no liberal bias when their news chief makes comments like this is beyond me. I can only assume that CNN is hoping for some more young, buxom, nymphomaniac school teachers to creep into the news and get the building pressure, and the monkey-blogs, off their backs. Thank God for media critics in pajamas!
