When everything is Hitler, nothing is Hitler.

His comments were inappropriate. Period. But it appears to be his M.O. -- make an overreaching comment (which he admitted to) - and then set fire to the house. My suggestion would be that Levy treat his position as less of a social experiment and more as an honor to serve his community - by focusing on things that will make the schools better, and not on things that will cause unnecessary conflict. It's immature. It is also indicative of a lack of leadership skills.

Interesting how Levy mimics the style of several of the more popular Fox News commentators - inflame, get everyone riled up, come out looking like the winner to the base, rinse, repeat. In fact, I seem to remember a US President who was known for the same tactic. Monkey see, monkey do. Levy did have a decent point about the videos being a little self-serving, and I do applaud questioning the expense (those types of videos cost nothing in new software and can be put together in minutes) but any possible good I can wring out of his efforts are just wiped out by the crassness and lack of common sense. It's a shame, he brings a new vantage point to the table, and while I disagree with him often, it is nice to have a differing voice at the table. But not when that voice is toxic.
