Well, I hope you have an air-sickness bag handy. Here we have Indiana State Representative Dave Cheatham -- one of a number of Indiana Democrats that fled to Illinois to stop legislation aimed at reining in public sector unions -- comparing his total dereliction of public responsibility in order to protect teachers unions to a) "making our schools better" and b) putting your life on the line by serving in Afghanistan. Oh, and as an added bonus, he illustrates this by quoting impressionable children in his wife's first-grade class. Nice.
