“Radical”

by evanmcmurry

Moral of the Daily Show‘s Michelle Rhee interview: nobody will ever go broke in this country calling themselves a radical, no matter what they mean by it, especially if it’s nothing.

Stewart was good at pressing Rhee on specifics—she dissembles through vagueness—but he missed a chance at the end to call her on her claim that teachers need to be paid more and respected more. Rhee is as anti teachers’ unions as they come.
