Matt and Ezra claim that the left does not treat teacher's unions with kid gloves.
Okay, I guess if you define implementing an extraordinarily minimal standard of performance, and small bonuses for people who exceed that standard--both economic propositions where the evidence on the Republican side is considerably better than the evidence against the Laffer Curve--as bold, visionary propositions, then Democrats and the Left do not kowtow to the teacher's unions. By the same standard, I am declaring every conservative writer who does not actually advocating slashing income taxes to zero to be a radical, free-thinking independent.
