Maybe that's working, and maybe that's the explanation for why Thom Tillis feels he can be a total dick, especially to public workers in education. It's fashionable these days, if not de rigeur, to bash teachers, and Tillis added his own flourishes to the practice at the state's GOP state convention on Saturday, to great applause:
"They [public school teachers] don’t care about kids. They don’t care about classrooms. They only care about their jobs and their pensions."
It doesn't get any more brazen than that.
