Hey Wisconsin teachers, your mom doesn't work here
In the aftermath of petulant, infant-like teachers in Wisconsin trashing their own state capital, the estimates for cleaning up behind them are coming in. According to one, the cost of repair for the damage done by the derelict squatters will be in the $7.5million range.
Personally I'm dubious of that number but they say the damage to the marble floor will be extremely costly to repair nevertheless.
By contrast, the estimates for cleaning up after tea-party activists, whose rally numbers dwarf those of Wisconsin teachers, is precisely $0. After all, progressive teachers believe every job is some one elses' responsibility, never their own. Tea-party people pick up after themselves, the way responsible adults are wont to do.
