Rightbloggers denounce the wealthy, treasonous school teachers of Wisconsin

The effort by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and the Republican-led state legislature to deprive the state’s teachers of collective bargaining rights

was catnip to rightbloggers last week. This is because it involves two

of their traditional objects of hatred: Unions and public education.

You know things are serious when the intensely rightwing Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government and the Washington Times actually use the famous communist President Franklin Roosevelt as a stick to beat the teachers’ union. (Real Clear Politics even added, “FDR’s Ghost Is Smiling on Wisconsin’s Governor,” perhaps in admiration of his nerve.)
