Education Secretary Rod Paige has apologized for calling the National Education Association a "terrorist organization" yesterday. He feels especially bad because he knows just how it feels: "As one who grew up on the receiving end of insensitive remarks, I should have chosen my words better."
We had no idea those taunts of "cry-baby" would have such an effect. Or do you think he's talking about something else? It's so unlike the conservatives to play the victim card.
