NYT op-ed columnist Gail Collins wrote recently about teacher layoffs that she pinned on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (via Twitchy):

All of that came as a distinct surprise to Claudia Felske, a member of the faculty at East Troy High School who actually was named a Wisconsin Teacher of the Year in 2010. In a phone interview, Felske said she still remembers when she got the news at a “surprise pep assembly at my school.” As well as the fact that those layoffs happened because Walker cut state aid to education [emphasis added].

The “fact” that those layoffs happened because of Walker’s cuts to education?

About that:

But the big error in Collins’s piece is her claim that “those layoffs happened because Walker cut state aid to education.” As you can see in the excerpt above, Collins is talking about teacher layoffs that occurred in 2010. Walker did not become governor until 2011.

Collins has a B.A. from Marquette University and an M.A. from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, so Walker’s lack of college degree has already exposed him as being intellectually incapable of retroactively conforming to “facts” from higher educated media types.

Ironically, Collins’ column, which has since been “corrected” (see below), is called “Scott Walker needs an eraser.” Agreed — so he can loan it to Collins.

Here’s the Times’ correction:
