“Rarely is the Question Asked, is Our Children Learning?”

I don't teach my Civil War sections today, but I've passed a number of my students in the hallways.  Just about all of them mentioned that Sarah Palin referenced "McClellan" as the commander in charge of American forces in Afghanistan in the debate last night.  I am so proud.

  • I caught that too Kevin. I thought about it last night but I’m sure others here could weigh in with some interesting suggestions as to how the war against terrorism might be different if “Little Mac” were in charge. Glad your students watched the debate.

  • Maybe it is because you teach at a school where students do not “pass” a course with a D… Of course, this is a sexist remark and I realize that.

  • What would McClellan call the surge? A gentle push? A nudge?

  • I wonder if McClellan was ever on TV?

  • Gen McClellan wanted a surge, of course, while Lincoln denied him the troops he wanted.
