Not Quite as Doomed as Usual

Well, McLeroy got shot down in his nomination for the head of the school board here. Party in the thread. Enjoy the ice cream cake.

Congratulations, Texas. You may not be entirely DOOMED after all.

Now they just need to get rid of the guy who nominated him, Rick Perry... and all the idiots who voted for him.

And of course, the vote was 19 to 11 in favor of McLeroy. It's just that he needed two thirds.

Still pretty doomed, frankly.

According to Ed Brayton, he is still a member of the schoolboard, just not the chairman, so, while it is a victory for the side of sunshine and happy puppies over the forces of darkness, it is a very slight one.

I live here, so I'll take the small victories, even ones by a one-vote margin.

Of course, once that fades, I'll be back to my usual cynicism about education over here.
