2006 is also another chance to beat PerzelThe Speaker of the PA House, John Perzel had this to say about the School District's plan for a new required high school course on African and African American history (thanks to A Smoke Filled Room for highlighting this from today's paper first):
"They should understand basic American history before we go into African American history."OK then...
For more white racist sentiments, read the whole thing here.
Meanwhile, remember that Perzel is the most powerful Republican in the state House and possibly the whole state. Locally, he controls the Philadelphia Parking Authority, holds a lot of sway over the PA Convention Center and a large role in the management of the School District via his Republican cronies on the School Reform Commission (remember that the SRC is run by 3 Dems and 3 Republicans even though the city is 75% Democratic or more).
So, in short, let's dump Perzel, as well as Santorum, in 2006.
