Don't let the door hit you on the butt, Cheri!

Cheri Pierson-Yecke reached into the ring, picked up her hat, and is getting ready to stomp out of town. Apparently, her welfare benefits at the Center of the American Experiment were about to run out and she needed to find a job, especially since her prospects for a congressional gig weren't looking too good. Spot says there may be something to this welfare to work business after all!

Cheri announced late yesterday (Monday 8/29) that she was dropping out of the 6th district congressional race in Minnesota in a implicit admission that Michele Bachmann, who is running for the same seat, is better looking. Cheri and Michele were both after the knuckle-dragger vote. She also announced that she was getting out of Dodge, heading to Florida to be the chief kill-joy for Florida's K-12 school system. Minnesota's loss is Florida's gain!

Only, some folks in Florida and elsewhere have misgivings:
Why in the world would this failure of an Education Czar from Minnesota be promoted and allowed to repeat her miserable performance in Florida?

[Link]: August 29, 2005--Cheri Pierson Yecke today announced that Florida Governor Jeb Bush has invited her to play a lead role on his education team. Yecke will end her Sixth Congressional District bid to help implement Governor Bush's reform agenda.

"I am honored to have been asked by Governor Jeb Bush to be such a significant part of his education team," said Yecke. "It is therefore with deep regret that I announce that I will no longer be a candidate for Minnesota's sixth district Congressional seat."

Let's run that through the Reality Community Translator: Yecke was unpopular with Minnesotans. She succeeded in dividing and pissing off the educational/science communities in particular with her loony take on everything from religion in the classroom, to sex Ed, to science & evolutionary biology. Her fringe ideas finally elicited statewide disgust and votes to send her packing. So she decided to run for the Sixth Congressional District Seat in 2006. The prospect of winning began to look worse and worse as support for the GOP in Minnesota went south along with Bush's numbers.

Truly, a Horatio Alger story.

In reflecting on her move, Cheri said that she was glad to be moving to a state without an income tax! You'll enjoy the executions, too, Cheri.

Spotty's advice to Floridans: Cheri Pierson-Yecke is a doctrinaire Bush (first George and now Jeb) functionary. She is an agent in the destruction of public education. Watch her very, very carefully.
