Is our children learning?

As W once famously asked a crowd in our very own Florence, South Cackilacky, so will the parents of Red Raider students be asking themselves now that we've received news of Texas Tech's latest faculty hire: Alberto "Sgt. Schultz" Gonzales.

Gonzales, who was Gov. George W. Bush’s lawyer, Texas secretary of state and
then a Texas Supreme Court justice before joining Bush in Washington, will be
working as an visiting professor in the political science department, teaching a
“special topics” course on contemporary issues in the executive branch,
according to Dora Rodriguez, a senior business assistant in the department. The
university later said it will be a junior-level course.

As reader RS of Talking Points Memo wonderfully wished:

Please tell me there's at least one Texas Tech political science student
with the guts to answer "I do not recall" to every test question. Maybe even "I
do not recall remembering." least they didn't hire him to teach Constitutional Law.
