Education Secretary stands firm against 11-year-old Emma!

The AP has another interview with Education Secretary Margaret Spellings, who is not at all abashed about bashing Buster Baxter for visiting the 11-year-old daughter of two moms:
"We need to know what we're getting," Spellings said Tuesday. "We need to have a clearer, brighter line so that we don't discover late in the process that this is what is coming down the pike."
"Pike," indeed. What a funny, perhaps Freudian, reference to the girl at the center of the controvery, 11-year-old Emma Pike.

Who said the Bush Administration wasn't willing to play tough with children?
