We have not heard much from Betsy DeVos lately, and while clearly the most controversial and unqualified member of the Fourth Reich (walking termite buffet Mike Pence was the tie-breaking vote to confirm DeVos), we wondered why she wasn’t still making gaffe-prone headlines.
Initially she couldn’t open her billionaire Amway yap without blurting out something about public Ameros for private religious schools, so what gives?
“Behind the scenes, DeVos met with Frank Luntz, one of the top Republican messaging experts, to figure out how to talk about conservative educational policies without sparking protests from teachers and liberals. ‘Frank has a 60-slide deck of the words to use, and the words to lose, regarding parental choice, vouchers, charter schools, teacher pay, and all the other issues in education reform,’ said a copy of her schedule from last June, published by the liberal nonprofit American Oversight, which sued for her calendar.”
Jeebus, a 60-slide powerpoint of talking points? Thanks a lot Frankie.
American Oversight has a pretty great website with a searchable database. I think this organization is a great tool for researching what these critters are up to.
