Burn Of The Day
Mr Smart Stupid has a new idea emanating from his filterless brain:
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday he would use the U.S. Department of Education to police speech on college campuses.
During an interview, Glenn Beck asked Carson if he would shut down the Education Department as president.
“I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do,” Carson responded. “It would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists.”
During a town hall meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, last month, a student asked President Barack Obama last month what he thought of Carson’s plan to monitor for political bias on campuses. Obama responded, “I have no idea what that means, and I suspect he doesn’t either.”
