Michelle, Why Are You So Disengenuous?


That is the word that comes to mind when I read a post on her web site like this. In her post, she references this news article, then proceeds to "cut and paste" those parts of the article that best support her position.

Of course, Michelle doesn't let the facts get in the way of her conclusion: "Truly outrageous." No, Michelle, what is truly outrageous is your pathetic attempt to sway those of us who seek the whole truth, not just your censored pap.

The principal did the right thing in stopping the "play" before any of the students filed into the auditorium. However, that act of common sense doesn't fit into Michelle's sense of skewering the principal to the way she sees fit. Her solution, of course, is to edit that little unfortunate event out of her flaming post. Can't have our villian seen as doing the right thing, now can we, Michelle?

Yes, there indeed is a "truly outrageous" act in this whole story. In this case, however, the story teller herself is the one that is "truly outrageous."
