I must be dreaming can this be true? Can former Delaware Governor Pete DuPont actually run again? Charlie Copeland as Pete’s running mate? Well not running mate because the governor and Lt. Governor run independent from each other.
I hear their campaign slogan is Bringing Delaware back to prosperity. Wait a minute, this can’t be true am I still asleep? I’m hearing a deal was cut with Mike Protack if he not go off into a political rant calling the DuPont family the Delaware Mafia, Pete would appoint him secretary of transportation. No no no no ! This has to be a dream! Jason Scott as Pete’s communication director and Kilroy as Copeland’s! OMG, Mike Matthews as secretary of education! DOE Dan as chief of staff! John Young to take the lead to dismantle Race to The Top? O crap this is a dream, I just woke up !
On Monday, News Corporation announced that it had signed an agreement to buy 90 percent of Wireless Generation for $360 million in cash, its first foray into the for-profit world of education since its book publishing arm, Harper Collins, got out of the textbook business in the mid-1990s. The deal thrusts one of the world’s largest media conglomerates behind a concept championed by New York City’s schools chancellor, Joel I. Klein: a numbers-based system to evaluate and rank schools and to improve teaching.
The announcement was all the more interesting because just two weeks ago, Mr. Klein said he would leave the chancellor’s job at the end of the year to become an executive vice president with News Corporation, charged with pursuing business opportunities in the education marketplace.
Ok lets just go along with the teacher union bashers and say unions are sucking education funding dry (not the case). So does that justify taking the those funds and sending them to Wall Street?
Damn, I would love to see Jack Markell’s stock portfolio! When Jack kicked in $700,000.00 of his own money to run for governor I wondered what kind of idiot would do that! I guess a smart one !
“Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, said Tuesday that a $1 million contribution from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation to help elect Republican governors had turned into “a galvanizing moment” for Democrats.
‘When we told our supporters about the Fox donation,” Mr. Markell said, ‘they exceeded that amount in small contributions to us within a matter of days.’
WOW! I wonder with the Jack Markell – Wireless Generation – Joel Kline- News Corp -Rupert Merdoch connection does this mean Markell is in bed with Rupert?
I dare anyone to say Jack Markell isn’t an enabler for those trying to privatize public education. OMG Joel Kline has strings on Delaware schools WTF !
