Rich Lowry gushes over Bob McDonnell, the Republican nominee for governor of Virginia, at National Review Online. Among the wonderful things McDonnell will do with a four-year term: “On education, he has pledged to award an additional 100,000 college degrees over the next four years, particularly in science and math.”
Wow. I didn’t know the governor of Virginia could award college degrees. But since he apparently can, why stop at 100,000? Let’s eliminate the colleges and universities altogether and have Richmond run the printing presses nonstop until degrees are manufactured for every resident of the commonwealth.
