Links: Tim Pawlenty gets glittered

What is it, glitter season? First Newt Gingrich, now Tim Pawlenty has had glitter thrown on him by gay and women's rights groups CODEPINK and Reproductive Rights. Pawlenty seemed to be a pretty good sport about it.

Never give up on your dreams of higher education. A ninety-nine-year-old man dropped out of college in 1932, but chose to re-enroll and finish his degree from Eastern Oregon University. I find this inspiring... and kind of sad. 

And now for a little bit too much education: watch this child-thing recite the story of Jack and the beanstalk. Children are getting far too much information, far too quickly. Soon they'll band together, and take over. Why are we supporting this?

Breaking Bad is going to premiere soon. It's about a high-school chemistry teacher who breaks bad by selling crystal meth that he cooks himself. That's pretty bad. Here are five real-life teachers who have done much worse.

He's a much better sport about than I would be. These people need to have their asses kicked.

Yeah, I'm not sure that's very productive.

It's more productive than pouring glitter on someone and asking him why he doesn't have the "courage" to support things he disagrees with.

I think the fact that he disagrees with gay rights and reproductive rights is the point...he doesn't have the courage to stand up for all people to have equal rights. It's easy for someone to continue on with their own narrow-minded opinion of "equal rights", when he, or she has never had to go without them. His stance is not courageous. It's hurting other Americans by depriving them of their rights.

What Yikes said. Also, I am a big supporter of gay rights but the whole glitter thing seems kinda silly.
