Bush Basher Reinstated In Colorado

Jay Bennish, an Overland High School geography teacher accused of presenting biased views in class, talks to the media after being reinstated earlier today in Greenwood Village, Colo. Bennish had been on paid leave from since March 1 while administrators determined whether he violated a district rule that teachers must present balancing viewpoints in the classroom. During a Feb. 1 lecture, Bennish compared President Bush's State of the Union Address to speeches by Adolf Hitler. (AP Photo by Jack Dempsey)

DFO: Score one for the Barking Moonbats. If this clown taught my children, I'd be living in his back pocket to make sure that he kept his politics to himself and taught geography. It's bad enough that ideologues indoctrinate at the college level. High school teachers should teach not brain-wash. Related: Mike Rosen/Rocky Mountain News, "Intellectual Child Abuse" here.
