Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

You might not recognize her, but this is Georgia's fearless leader in education. The State Superintendent. And tonight, heaven help us, she is going to be on Jeff Foxworthy's show "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?"
She has already said on one of the promos, "I probably know more than most people." Apparently, she didn't know enough to stay off of television in the first place or to get a makeover when she plowed ahead with plans to go on television. She didn't know enough to tell the teachers of the state that the Social Studies and Math super big state tests were going to hell in a hand basket when she knew months ahead of time.
I am amazed. If she flames out, everyone is going to say, of course, she's from Georgia. And if she succeeds, who is going to be surprised? She is the freaking Superintendent of Education. She should be smarter than a fifth grader.

I'm watching her right now. I'm digging her saucy 'doo.

Bless you, teach, for hanging in there with this broad. Is it wrong that I hope she loses?

She just said that she is inspired by Rocky Balboa.

Like I said: bless you.

She talks too damn much. Seriously.

Is there a Mr. Superintendent? If so, we need to form a prayer chain for that poor bastard.

If not ... shocker.

And here she goes, teach, gambling a half a million dollars that could go toward Georgia schools. But hey, you gotta go for it and go for your diploma. I hope you print that out, laminate it, and hang it on your wall.

We have decided that she should be playing for that sad county just outside Atlanta that lost its accreditation.

Now, go for it and lose. Oops. I am all wrong.

And Jeff Foxworthy's kids go to private school, too.

And why is she getting a history question? She taught freaking Social Studies.

I do believe there's a Mr. Super. You see why we're in such a mess. She talks so damned much, how does she get anything done?

And the best story I ever heard: right after she was elected the first go 'round, there was so much commotion surrounding her, she ran over her own damned dog in her driveway.

The last ten years of her life, she's been making mine miserable. Just so you know.

How do we get her out of office?

The woman KILLED HER DOG??

I swear to OPRAH, if she does not SHUT HER PIE HOLE, I will hop in my minivan (when it gets out of the shop ... that's a whole other problem) and gag her myself.

And, um, with whom did she sleep to get the Superintendent gig?

She made Jeff Foxworthy tear up. She made me throw up.

But hey. You might have some coin in the coffers, there, teach. That's not all bad.

Well, look who's smarter than a 5th grader. And the first million dollar winner at that.

Your comely lass of a Superintendent up and won a cool mil for you fine folks down there in Georgia.

Demand an accounting of her winnings. Make sure you get some for your classroom. Or at least make sure you get to go on her next trip to England.

Do you think Sylvester Stallone will show up to present the check?

Hey, you vote for this office. So, explain that, will you? And who would be sleeping with her, with all that yacking and screaming going on?

And the coinage is going to the deaf and blind schools I didn't even realize we had.

Now, I can't get that stupid song out of my head.

So, this is how I've spent my Friday night. I am such a party girl. At least tonight's game was away, but that, too, is another story.

Board up, enjoy the storm and stay safe.

You people ELECTED her?

I guess I shouldn't point fingers, considering here in North Carolina, we routinely elect halfwits to office. (And, yes, Elizabeth Dole, I am talking about you.)

Well, good for the deaf and blind. And good for Jeff Foxworthy, who appeared to get a handful of your girl.

And that fine John Edwards was yours, too, wasn't he?

But of course! Johnny Blue Eyes sold us on the story of a mill worker's son done good. Evidently, he sold Rielle whatshername on a bit more than that.

You too are cracking me up! I can't believe she won the million. I even watched some of the show, but Kathy Ireland was on and I missed this chick. Too bad.

Well, she didn't flame out, but were the questions all that hard? I'd say she's a nitwit, but not much different from many administrators I know and love (ahem!). And a lot better looking? BTW, if you have some time tomorrow, drop on by my place. We're playing the Silly Sunday Sweepstakes, and Sharing All That Caption Love!

I have never ever ever watched that show. Foxworthy gives me the creeps.
As for your super....I can't get past the hair. Has she no friends to tell her to get rid of that hair?!?!?!
Glad she won a million. Even gladder (HA!) I didn't watch it.
