Love him or hate him, Rush Limbaugh’s got an infuriatingly good way with rhetoric, as illustrated by his riff on the idea of rolling back NCLB:

“So they’re out there lobbying Congress to reduce this 100% target and delay the 2014 deadline,” according to Rush Limbaugh ( Democrats Demand We Leave Some Kids Behind). “I’ll make a deal with them. I’ll be glad to make a deal. I’ll say, “Fair enough. So we can stop with this 100% healthcare coverage, then, for every child in America?...Well, let’s eliminate the whole goal of 100% elimination of poverty. And how about this? Let’s eliminate this whole notion of a hundred percent carbon neutral footprints. You guys want to play a game, I’ll be glad to.”
