An Alabama teacher has been questioned by the Secret Service after using the hypothetical assassination of President Barack Obama as a way to teach angles to his geometry students, The Birmingham News reports […]
Officials said the Jefferson County geometry teacher was apparently teaching students about parallel lines and angles and used the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama.
“He was talking about angles and said, ‘If you’re in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president,’ ” said Joseph Brown, a senior in the geometry.
The paper says it could not reach the unidentified Corner High School teacher for comment.
No kidding — maybe try contacting the local psych ward?
I’m not that serious about the “teabagger” reference — nobody knows if this demented bozo is or ever has been a member of Teabagger Nation. And even if he is, he’s an exceptionally stupid and vicious example of one.
But still, um, wow.
