Gross, creepy, no thank you.

This is... discomfiting. Newsweek informs me that the College Board has bowed to conservative political pressure, and is revising their A.P. U.S. History standards to "emphasize American Exceptionalism". I am super creeped out by this news, and even more disturbed by the story of Colorado's Jefferson County school district, which apparently convened a board committee that determined that all course materials should promote “patriotism” and “respect for authority”. (The committee was disbanded after students walked out in protest.) Look, guys, it's history, not Jingoism 101. No one is going to secede from the nation because they find out that Thomas Jefferson was a total ass.
