Betsy DeVos’s confirmation hearing proves she’s unqualified, dangerous, and out of her league. PLUS: GRIZZLIES!!!

It’s unmistakably clear that Republicans are doing everything they can to protect their corporatist benefactor Betsy DeVos from having to face any sort of real scrutiny in her bid to become the nation’s Secretary of Education.
