Rand Paul said it was time to nuke the Department of Education. Not reform it, or change it, but get rid of it altogether. And the conservative crowd went wild.
March 14, 2013

Speaking Thursday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Conference(CPAC), Rand Paul demonstrated exactly the sort of thinking that really turns on conservatives. But frankly, the crowd seemed so turned on by Paul, that he probably could've called them all arseholes and they would've shouted in agreement.

This month I will propose a five year balanced budget.

My budget eliminates the Department of Education. (10+ seconds of ecstatic applause.)

Rand Paul said it was time to nuke the Department of Education. Not reform it, or change it, but get rid of it altogether. And the conservative crowd went wild.

Lord knows the last thing they want is the public-at-large running around educated well enough to realize that the Republican party is full of crack pots, or that the Earth isn't really flat.
