Teachers Union Chief Spews Compassionate Hate

The head of the Chicago Teachers Union is saying sorry after mocking Obama's education secretary, Arne Duncan, for having a lisp and talking like a prep school boy. Why is it that liberals, as compassionate as they are purported to be, embrace bigotry with such zeal?

On Duncan’s “lisp”: “You know he went to private school, because if he’d have gone to public school, he’d have had that lisp fixed. I know, that was ugly, wasn’t it? I’m sorry.”

A spokesman for Duncan said Monday that the education secretary has spoken to Lewis and that she has apologized for her remarks about him.

Lewis also made fun of her drug use when she was the only black woman at Dartmouth - a fact which she thinks people are too impressed by.

“People are impressed,” Lewis riffs. “Let me tell you, I spent those (college) years, smoking lots of weed, self-medicating, self-medicating. Thank you. Sounds like you all did, too. I’m, sorry — there are kids here. I wasn’t supposed to say that — right? Too late.”
