“I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do … it would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists,” presidential candidate Ben Carson told Glenn Beck yesterday.
No. I like the idea of trash-heaping the Department of Education better than I do using it as some sort of Richard Nixon-esque spy agency. The country has enough alphabetical intelligence agencies … no reason to stack another on the heap.

Carson. Nice guy. Hell of a brain surgeon. Presidential material. Meh.
