If you missed last Saturday’s CSCOPE debate between State Board of Education vice chair Thomas Ratliff, R-Mt. Pleasant, and state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, here it is in its entirety.
On one side, you had an SBOE member who showed up with facts. On the other, you had an ambitious politician running for higher office who came armed with red meat for the paranoid right. But don’t take our word for it, watch the whole thing for yourself.
And finally, we’ll point out that this video is unedited. We feel the need to stress this because, given the history of this “controversy,” it’s likely that the CSCOPE opponents will accuse us of using Islamic camera angles, or some other crazy thing.
