In the grand tradition of Don McLeroy and Cynthia Dunbar, we have a new moron running for the Texas State Board of Education. Her name is Lady Theresa Thombs and she’s quite a piece of work. And she wants you to know right up front that she doesn’t buy any of that evolution nonsense:
You’re right, we didn’t. And no one claims we did. I have this silly idea that no one should serve on a local board of education, much less a state-level one, if they can’t pass the final exams in the classes offered in the schools. And I guarantee you she’d fail most of them. Including spelling:
Thombs had said she wanted history lessons written by “experts, not people from some socialist higher education.”
She went on: “We know we didn’t come from monkeys!”
Thombs’ website made its debut last week.
She wrote that she’s running to fight — her spellings — “adgendas and ideoligies.”
That was right after the part about teaching the basics.
Parents are “criticle,” she wrote, and she’s an “advicate” and “expereinced.”
She summed up her “Mission and Issues” as to “stem the tide of our best and brightest teachers leaving the classroom to pursue other carriers, because they can no longer live with the policies and mandates they no are harmful to their students.”
What better way to tell people that you’re qualified to run the educational system than to put up a website filled with spelling errors. Of course, this is Texas so that might actually work in her favor.
