Anne Northup’s Miseducation

Yesterday, Anne Northup released her education policy. The document was ridiculed with grammatical errors and spelling inaccuracies. Thankfully, LG candidate Jeff Hoover taught math. If he were an English teacher, trouble would be imminent.

Kentucky had been clamoring for Northup policy. We assumed her policy was coherent. Her endeavor befits a marginal first grader. Kentucky requires a governor who can spell. Grammar is also important. Our leader should know the difference between affect and effect.

The Northup campaign is amateur. Anyone who disbelieves the aforesaid is irrational. Let us state the truth. Education is important. If for no other reason, then one learns proper sentence structure.

Knock it off Steele, you've never been an editor or teacher in your life.

It's alright to edit and proofread, but always be careful when you do it. Item:

Politics is no [not] pink tea. Politics is [involves] conflict. Pansies and ideologues should abstain.

[Actually, politics do not own things but are owned by people.] They had no feelings. [Then how did they know they were smart and hungry?] They won, they lost, they continued fighting. They were not Molly Coddles. [Mollycoddle is one word.] Principles did not blind them.

See what I mean?

While Anon may be correct, we're bloggers, not professional journalists so a little leeway should be expected our way. I think the point of the piece is still valid. Anne is a professional, and her campaign has to reflect this. Thus, there can be no mistakes in anything she says or releases. We can debate all we want about human error ("mistakes happen"), but neither the Democrats or the media will show any quarter (and by the way, I'm candidate neutral).
