Anatomy of a GOP disaster. This is required reading. It explains the FL education fiasco.

I don't want to spend too much time high fiving. Jeb Bush is plotting his revenge as the Dark Side did in The Empire Strikes Back.

But in FL there is an ALL. OUT. WAR. We want Republican blood in the street. I have to be fair and remind everyone that a handful of brave Republicans agreed with the teachers that the bill in the legislature was WRONG!

I encourage ALL Florida Dems to contribute to the party or to a candidate NOW. Help our party take the state back!!! There is excitement among Dems like I've never seen before. Teachers are spreading the word to their family and friends about corruption in Tallahassee. Keep pounding the Reps!!! I talked to a secretary at my school today. She printed the list of legislators who voted in favor of SB6 (see the link for explanation) and put it in her desk. The common person has been awakened! The bully Republicans have been exposed. There is time for YOU to spread the word to vote for Alex Sink (D) for governor. Make this a grassroots/netroots campaign! There are 72,000 Florida teachers and their family on one Facebook page slamming the Reps. There are 50,000 others slamming the same Reps on a separate Facebook page. We are mobilized and ready. The Empire won't know what has hit it.

SNIP

The past month has been a watershed moment in Florida politics, and the ripples will be tubular in November. Democracy was triumphant, and the Democratic Party gained a whole heap of new strength. The Republicans, led by Jeb Bush, stumbled and fell flat on their swollen faces.

Jeb Bush has dreamed his whole political life of plunging a dagger in the heart of public education.

On April 9, 2010 at 2:26 a.m., the Florida House of Representatives voted Jeb Bush closer to his lifes dream than he has ever been. At the very same moment they destroyed it. Jeb Bush, like Icarus, has finally flown too close to the sun. A sleeping giant has been roused.

2. can you edit out "i want blood in the streets"?
seems a bit hypocritical with all the criticisms of violence at tea bag rallies.
