Super Bloggers Prove The Flubsome Documents are Authentic

Super Bloggers prove again that their secret decoder rings are highly accurate and their secret documents are authentic. While they are temperamental due to the Lucky Charms cereal dust occasionally plugging the alphadiscombobulators, they nonetheless prove to be extremely accurate.

We deciphered page two of the Plan for the Demise of Education and posted the findings at 7:00 AM on Friday the 18th. In that posting we ran the following paragraph decoded from this top secret document:

....fortunately we can take the money from rural Hoosiers. They are mostly quiet farm folk mixed among the rural poor and no one will notice except the school folks that those rural students are already at the bottom of every financial ranking there is. To make sure that this is ok with them, or at least to distract them so they don't notice, we will drive around in an RV, wear flannel shirts and eat tenderloins at their picnics.

Later that day the Indy Star ran this article indicating the Governor's plans to ride around in an RV, wear flannel shirts and eat tenderloins at rural Hoosier's picnics. (Click here for the article) This article was posted at 10:58 AM on the 18th. We rest our case! (Click here for Saturday's article)

Let no one ever question the authenticity of our secret documents or the accuracy of our Lucky Charms secret decoder rings. :-)

I'm with you, IPS Super!

Governor Daniels should stay in Indianapolis, dine on more upscale fare than fried tenderloin, wear Oxford cloth shirts and only travel in one of the State's private aircraft.

It is embarassing to have a Governor who DRIVES an RV out to RURAL Indiana and TALKS to other Hoosiers while wearing a FLANNEL shirt (for gosh sakes, has he no shame?).

I can just imagine the New York Times getting a hold of this and making Hoosiers look like RV-drivin', tenderloin eatin', flannel shirt wearin', rural livin' hicks.

Governor Daniels is only adding to Indiana's poor image around the country. As if Daylight Savings Time is not enough.

Stay on 'em Super!

A photo op is just that - a photo op.

Bring's to mind the photo of Clinton holding the duck, trying to look like a duck hunter.

Somehow Mitch traveling around in an RV feels the same.

But if it works for him, he probably should do it. And..if it helps him relate to the regular working class guy then he should do it.

Let's hope he was sincere.

There are a handful of people not sure yet.

If all Mitch wants is a photo op there's a better way -

1. Fly a state plane to a rural airfield,
2. Put on a flannel shirt while be driven into town,
3. Shake the hand of rural-looking person,
4. Point to a tenderloin,
5. Look thoughtful and concerned,
6. Return to plane
7. Quickly remove all flannel
8. Wash hands thoroughly.

That would maximize the Governor's time and minimize his seeing much of rural Indiana and mingling much with rural Hoosiers.

Taking it as a given that Daniels is going to go to rural Indiana (who knows why),is there a certain vehicle he would have to drive to prove sincerity?

Of course, the RV is symbolic - made in northern Indiana by employed Hoosier workers.

We sincerely hope it helps. We truly hope he visits many of the excellent public schools each stop along his way. Don't forget that most Republican voters along the way have their own children in those very schools.

Those schools aren't perfect, but most are darn good.

We sincerely hope in his travels, he cares enough to spend some time seeing the good things going in public education today. Those of us who have been here for awhile know that things have improved greatly. We hope some of the private rhetoric from his staffers and political advisors softens and they at least begin to recognize, even if it's reluctantly, the progress Indiana Hoosiers have made.

If not, he (and other Republicans) may find to their own chagrin that they are seriously underestimating the level of commitment many Hoosier parents have to the local school their own children attend.

Time will tell. :-)

In Central Indiana, which public high school would you rank as "superior" -- one to which any parent would eagerly send their child?

Just curious to hear educators' views.
