Somewhere on the internet, a math teach with an obscure livejournal account wrote up the following post:
That was actually the best part for me -- getting to make fun of Ron Paul and getting all the students to join in. Didn't even have to attack his assinine policies, just showed him on the bottom of the GOP opinion polls month after month, and every time I added a new month's worth of Data and talked about the other candidates rising or falling, and extending the lines on their graphs, I'd end with "and Ron Paul stayed flat" and add another segment to his straight line near the zero marker. The kids loved the running gag. They started to join in, chorusing "and Ron Paul stayed flat!" Some of them even got a little impatient as I talked about the rest of the candidates: "and what about Ron Paul?" "He stayed flat." Cheers. :-D "And Fred Thompson dropped out of the race, dropping his numbers to zero, so Ron Paul finally got ahead of someone." Laughter. It was sweet.Not surprisingly, the Paultards respond with their typical legion of spam. "Oh, how dare he discuss real world applications of graphs and statistics in a math class!!! This is what's wrong with America, dammit!" As though it's somehow the math teacher's fault that Ron Paul is a complete failure at life. One Paultard even goes a bit further:
We are thinking of making up some T-shirts with this picture on the front, with the the words "PREACHING HIS POLITICAL OPINIONS TO YOUR CHILDREN" on the back, and "GREGORY EARTOFF" under the picture in the front.Others have resorted to digging up personal information. Gee, I wonder why no one takes them seriously. You crazy motherfuckers.
We will then mail them to all the residents in the area of your school.
What do you think? Good idea? You see Greg, some lessons in life are tough, especially when you become the example for others. We are crazy you say? Ok then, maybe we will act it then.
Your crazy for fucking with us, asshole. Welcome to the shitlist.
