One of the great newspaper cliches is the front page with a cute kid holding a gun at the head of dog with a headline: "Buy this newspaper or I'll shoot the puppy."
Well in politics, we're seeing the same thing in the battle over California's Prop. 30. In effect, the political system is arguing, "Give us the money or we'll destroy what's left of your children's educational future."
Q: What kind of political system is willing to nuke the future?
A: One that is failing.
How sad.
