NCLB "Shrinklits" spin

I've just finished a substantial detail-oriented task (took about a day or more spread over the past week), and I am just too tired right now to read and talk about the Miller-McKeon discussion draft sequel, esp. Title II. I'm far too tired now to analyze the various spins that people have tried out on the Title I part of the draft, let alone Title II. I'll offer a few Shrinklits versions, and you pick which one you want to use:

  1. It was the best of laws, it was the worst of laws.
  2. All happy reforms are alike; each unhappy reform is unhappy in its own way.
  3. Quickly, word got to the villagers and everybody in the village rushed to the newspaper to see Anansi's school listed under "needs improvement." It was such a shame for Anansi, he ran away and hid in a corner of his room. That is why he is always in the top corner of rooms and why he hides from us.
  4. As someday it may happen that a scapegoat must be found,
    I've got a little list. I've got a little list
    of overblown pol gasbags who might well be DC-bound
    and that never would be missed. They never would be missed!
  5. I am, indeed, mighty world-destroying Discourse,
    Here made part of U.S. Code for destroying the school.
    Even without Statute, none of the teachers here
    Arrayed within the foolish classrooms shall stay in their professions another 37 nanoseconds.
  6. It was a dark and stormy reauthorization.

Any others?
