His Oneness is a remarkably petty and vindictive little man,  and he has surrounded himself with like-minded individuals.    Louisiana was never going to win any Race to the Top education money,  because after Katrina,  it instituted a number of charter schools and they are performing magnitudes better in New Orleans and environs than the old system.    Teachers unions absolutely despise this,  of course.

New Jersey committed another unpardonable sin by balancing its budget.  How many hours of how many days do you suppose it took some bureaucrat to find something  — anything — wrong with that state’s application,  so it could be refused?   And you and I got to pay for this vengeful work.

I agree with Daniel Foster — the Obama Administration has made a mistake by presenting Gov. Christie a reason to confront it,  and I think  this will prove to be only an opening salvo.

If you doubt liberal fantasies can wreak more than economic havoc, have a  look here.   (h/t Jonah Goldberg at The Corner)
