Heard: The Mack Attack & The Barracuda wanted to hold the rally at a local public high school field house. During the school day. While classes were in session. And, after initially approving the permit, Superintendent Man reneged, & told the campaign to hold the event elsewhere. Guess he decided that a campaign event would not align with the students' higher understanding of benchmarks & standards.
Noted: Our Humble School District does not allow campaigning of any kind on school property while school is in session. They often even frown on teachers whose cars sport campaign bumper stickers. We would suspect that would include The Mack Attack & The Barracuda. About A Gazillion Parents, School Board Members and Community Leaders deluged Superintendent Man's office, complaining that The District was playing Partisan Politics, so the campaign relocated to the park up the street from the high school.
Quoted: "We are not participating in a political rally," Superintendent Man insisted, before pulling the plug on Palin-McCain. "We are letting our kids have new educational opportunities." Right-O. Sure Thing.
