Sheldon Berman Made His Last Day Ridiculous

Yesterday Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson questioned Jack Conway for the 58th day in a row: “For almost two full months, this man has evaded very simple questions about a very serious matter,” said Robertson. “Conway may never come clean with voters…but in November he will clean out his office.” [Press Release]

Election year shenanigans much? The National Education Association yesterday announced that Steve Beshear won the America’s Greatest Education Governor Award.

    Is NEA out of its mind? Did Brent McKim do a Robert Felner in supporting this award? (Robert did some pretty fancy footwork with the credentials of SB’s henchmen to get them through the state.) Usually NEA has more sense than this.
