Obama Delegates in the News

Obama adviser and Democratic delegate James Meeks, who recently criticized Chicago for “valuing sex education programs over academic ones,” has a new plan to bring national attention to the failing Chicago public school system:

Six thousand protesters, wearing bright orange T-shirts, could ring Wrigley Field during the first Chicago Cubs playoff game, under a plan by state Sen. James Meeks to move his school funding protests to a national stage.
With the Cubs expected to clinch the playoffs soon, Meeks said Thursday he hopes overhead TV shots from the Goodyear Blimp during the first home playoff game — probably a night game on Oct. 1 — will give the entire nation a view of protesters upset about Illinois’ inequitable school funding system.
“We want the Goodyear Blimp shot,’’ Meeks said following a breakfast forum about Illinois school funding at the Union League Club.

Can we please have a little MSM coverage of this? Mayor Daley, Senator Obama and Bill Ayers all had a hand in this mess and they need to be held accountable for its failings.
