And now it begins: the War On Teachers Who Might Make Education Enjoyable. Florida school teacher Jim Piculas has been fired by Rushe Middle School for performing “wizardry” after he showed students a 30 second magic trick where he made a toothpick disappear and then reappear.

That’s how it starts folks: first a bit of sleight-of-hand, and before you know it, the children are sacrificing babies to Beelzebub.

Junior President Bush, who a month ago said that he was kinda envious of the lucky-duck troops havin’ all sortsa fun and romantic adventures in Afghanistan, has now declared that he’s sharing the sacrifices of the troops in Iraq… by giving up golf.

For the first time, Bush revealed a personal way in which he has tried to acknowledge the sacrifice of soldiers and their families.

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

Aren’t you glad to have such a man as President of the Free World?
