Rock the Gloat

In yesterday’s Daily News, Randi Weingarten laments the eager embrace of Joel Klein, who has been uncorking big, metaphorical bottles of champagne over a teachers’ contract that is still pending approval by…drumroll…the teachers.

Randi also complains that Klein further inflamed a sensitive issue when he “gloated” about the contract provisions on a blog.

As our friends at The Wonkster point out, Randi’s reaction is rooted in a Politicker post from last week, in which Klein asserted that he hadn’t lost out in the deal, as one of our sources had suggested.

All of which underscores an oft-posted sentiment in the comments section: Yes, Virginia, this really is a small and circular world.
