Spongebob Against the LAUSD?

Chief Parker over at Mayor Sam's Sister Cityhas a great piece on the Los Angeles Unified Schoold district:

Right on the heels of finding out Spongebob just came out of the closet, I come to find out that now he might be out campaigning with the Governator. I guess it makes sense because the demographics and polling information are probably higher for Spongebob than any of our current crop of electeds. Think I'm nuts? Here's my source -

The LAUSD must prove that it can succeed as the nation's second-largest district, he said. Board member David Tokofsky said he's not surprised that the "Terminator" weighed in on the district's structure. "Next thing, Spongebob will be coming out for the breakup," Tokofsky said.

In all seriousness though, have the winds changed regarding the state of LAUSD? Another quote from the same Daily News article says it just might:

LAUSD board President Jose Huizar said in the same article that the question of breaking up the district will be tied to Hertzberg's candidacy, although it will remain on people's minds until the district develops a solid track record or the political climate shifts.

"I think it will die off if Hertzberg doesn't win," Huizar said. "The momentum will not be as great."

The Daily News writes again today:

Schwarzenegger support improves chances of LAUSD breakup. When he first suggested breaking up the LAUSD, many thought L.A. mayoral candidate Bob Hertzberg had to be dreaming. Not any more. Last week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he, too, thinks the district is too large and unresponsive, and he supports a breakup. So now with the most powerful force in California politics on his side, Hertzberg doesn't seem like such a pipe dreamer, does he?

Is it possible?

Everyone in Los Angeles favors the break-up of LAUSD.......

Except......the LAUSD Board and the employee unions.

And....yeah...Huggie Hertzberg has a chance to throw Mayor Poopie Hahn into a run-off election!
