While superficially there appear to be no two people more different than Barack Obama and Andrew Schlafly, they have led strangely parallel lives. They attended Harvard Law School at the same time, and both graduated with honours. They both had aspirations for an academic career lecturing on law, before turning their respective attentions to a run for elected office. But somehow now, as of March 2009, one is President of the United States, while the other is in a church basement teaching homeschooling students that humour did not exist before Jesus - but afterwards catapults and battering rams were used in battle for lulz.
↑Yes that is right, Obama was Andy's supervisor! Can't you just imagine Andy, after yapping pointlessly and incessantly in an editors' meeting, getting chastised by Obama, "Start making some quality edits. You're not fooling any of us here with your talk, talk, talk. Make some contributions to the Review or leave."
↑Without any evidence besides the fact that he couldn't imagine a larger one, Schlafly called his American History course "The world's largest pre-college class on American History", claiming it had 48 students. While this is certainly a large class, it is by no means unprecedented in public schools or elsewhere. Furthermore, by the time the class was actually underway, it appeared to be down to 24 students, decidedly average. As smaller class sizes are generally deemed preferable to larger ones, this small size may seem like an actual advantage to the students. Schlafly does not agree
