    There’s mention of this in the Peach Pundit newsletter though I prepared this yesterday.

    Common Core, an idea that developed when the GOP was the national majority and led by the national GOP, being attacked within the GOP as ObamaCore is another demonstration that the GOP is the party of obstruction. The GaGOP needs to act fast if Georgia is to dump it, because Common Core science standards have not yet been established. The complaint that science standards aren’t fair and balanced because they don’t include creationism and a 9,000 year old will highlight state leadership beholden to an ignorant minority GOP base, and send new scientific R&D and bio-tech employment elsewhere. What’s worse, Common Core could place tax credit scholarships to schools teaching nut-job science at risk.

    Senator Fran Millar said he was removed as Chairman of the Senate Education and Youth Committee because of politics. Perhaps that includes his support of ObamaCore.
