The most convincing argument against Common Core was given by Reagan Republican from Arizona, Sen. Al Melvin (R-Tucson):

Pressed by Bradley for specifics, Melvin said he understands "some of the reading material is borderline pornographic." And he said the program uses "fuzzy math," substituting letters for numbers in some examples.

If you start mixing up the letters and numbers the next thing you know they're going to try to multiply, and then who knows what the product will be!

You can't get anything past a Reagan Republican. They know damn well that "Al Gebra" is too darn close to "Al Qaeda" for a Christian nation. Heck, it was even invented by a mooslim!

[Though, now that I think about it, "Al Melvin" is pretty darn close to "Al Qaeda", so maybe he's just an Islamo-Rino, some kind of deep plant who's trying to make freedom-loving Republicans look stupid.] []

Forget Al Gebra and Al Qaeda: our real foe is Al Gore-a.
