Are you unhappy with your school board members? Do you think it couldn't get any worse? Meet Lady Theresa Thombs, candidate for Texas' state school board. As Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy writes this week:

In a rock-’em-sock-’em campaign forum, the North Richland Hills Republican with a noble honor title went medieval on her state education board opponents.

Kennedy goes on to describe her ham-fisted and inaccurate attacks on rivals. But, wait, there's more. Kennedy notes: 
 

Thombs’ website made its debut last week.

She wrote that she’s running to fight — her spellings — “adgendas and ideoligies.”

That was right after the part about teaching the basics.

Parents are “criticle,” she wrote, and she’s an “advicate” and “expereinced.”

She summed up her “Mission and Issues” as to “stem the tide of our best and brightest teachers leaving the classroom to pursue other carriers, because they can no longer live with the policies and mandates they no are harmful to their students.”
