In today’s Washington Post, Metro columnist Marc Fisher PWNS D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry for pulling a huge flip-flop on Mayor Adrian Fenty‘s proposal to close 23 schools. Barry was grandstanding for TV cameras on Thursday, calling schools chancellor Michelle Rhee “bullheaded” and railing against the proposed closings. Less than 24 hours later, he’s shaking the Mayor’s hand and calling the plan a “victory for our children.”
Fisher asked Rhee what she thought of Barry’s flip. She said: “I thought that was fascinating.”
